Westbound US 60 ramp to eastbound I-10 closed. All eastbound I-10 on-ramps between Baseline Road and Loop 202 closed. DETOUR: Eastbound I-10 traffic will detour on eastbound US 60 to southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and westbound Loop 202 (in Chandler area) to access eastbound I-10 beyond closure. Consider other alternate routes including eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway). Weekend closures of the eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Ray Road and eastbound off-ramps to Loop 202 will start at 10 p.m. Friday. Note: Through travelers on eastbound I-10 west of State Route 85 who don’t require a stop in the Phoenix area can avoid eastbound I-10 closures by detouring on southbound SR 85 in Buckeye area to eastbound I-8 to reach I-10 in the Casa Grande area.
·Eastbound Interstate 10 closed between the I-17 “Stack” interchange and State Route 51 near downtown Phoenix from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday (Aug. 10) for tunnel cleaning and maintenance. North- and southbound I-17 ramps to eastbound I-10 also closed. DETOUR: Eastbound I-10 traffic can detour to southbound I-17 starting at the Stack interchange and access I-10 at the “Split” interchange near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Southbound I-17 traffic approaching this closure can continue south on I-17 to connect with eastbound I-10 near the airport.
·Westbound Interstate 10 closed between the I-17 “Split” interchange near Sky Harbor Airport and Seventh Avenue from 9 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday (Aug. 11) for tunnel cleaning and maintenance.
