Eastbound Interstate 10 will be narrowed to two lanes between Guadalupe and Warner roads from 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, to 4 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 27, for roadway striping.

New Alert ( Jan. 28 – Jan. 31, 2022)

Westbound I-10 will be closed between State Route 143 and I-17 from 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28, to 4 a.m. Monday, Jan. 31, for pavement marking work, work zone set up and pavement repairs. In addition, the following ramps will be closed:

  • The westbound I-10 on-ramps at Elliot, Baseline and Broadway roads and 40th and 32nd streets.
  • The westbound US 60 on-ramp at Mill Avenue.

Detour: Drivers on westbound I-10 will exit at northbound SR 143 and travel north to westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) to access westbound I-10 beyond the closure. Drivers on westbound US 60 and from other areas of the East Valley should consider using the northbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) to westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway). Drivers on westbound I-10 bound for the West Valley can bypass the work zone by using the Loop 202 (South Mountain Freeway) and connecting with I-10 at 59th Avenue.

What to expect: When westbound I-10 reopens, drivers will see new lane striping between 36th Street and the Salt River bridges. In this area, travel lanes will be shifted from the outside of the freeway toward the middle so crews can create a safe work zone to relocate utilities without impacting traffic. This configuration will be in place for approximately three months.

News from the Curve - Monthly Construction Updates

January 2022

Happy New Year!

As 2022 began, Interstate 10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project construction activities really ramped up.

The Broadway Curve Constructors (BCC) continued installing the drilled-shaft foundations that will support the columns and abutments for the new 48th Street bridges over I-10. Crews also began installing the steel rebar footing of the first abutment for the new Broadway Road bridge over I-10, and the drilled-shaft foundations that will support the abutments to widen the Guadalupe Road bridge over I-10. Crews also began forming the foundation for new noise walls between Baseline and Elliot roads.

The BCC has released the first quarterly construction operations survey. You can access the survey here. Your responses will help us determine how we can improve construction and public outreach activities. This survey is anonymous and voluntary; if you wish to participate, please complete it by Feb. 21, 2022.

HEADS UP: The BCC will fully close westbound I-10 between State Route 143 and I-17 from 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28, to 4 a.m. Monday, Jan. 31, for pavement marking work, work-zone set up and pavement repairs. This closure will also impact several on- and off-ramps. Visit the project website to view complete details and detour routes. Allow extra travel time, as delays are likely.

When westbound I-10 reopens early Monday, Jan. 31, drivers will see new lane striping between 36th Street and the Salt River bridges. In this area, travel lanes will be shifted from the outside of the freeway toward the middle so crews can create a safe work zone to relocate utilities without impacting traffic. Drivers can expect this configuration to be in place for approximately three months.

Please remember that the speed limit in the 11-mile work zone is 55 mph. Slow down and stay alert to protect yourself, other motorists and the crews working to improve I-10 for all of us.
