The first phase of work for the Arizona Department of Transportation’s I-10 Broadway Curve improvement project is set to begin late July 23 with a weekend closure of westbound I-10, according to a news release from ADOT.

This marks the first of at least eight weekend highway closures planned for I-10 or US 60-Superstition Freeway this summer, according to the release. The freeway expansion project will occur across 11 miles of east- and westbound I-10 between Loop 202 and I-17, including the Broadway Curve between Baseline Road and 40th Street.

ADOT advises drivers to expect delays and use alternate routes while westbound I-10 is closed between Loop 202 and US 60 from 10 p.m. July 23 to 4 a.m. July 26, according to the release. Drivers can use the eastbound Loop 202-Santan Freeway to the northbound Loop 101-Price Freeway as a detour, according to the release, and drivers bound for the West Valley can use the Loop 202-South Mountain Freeway to bypass the work zone and connect with I-10 at 59th Avenue.

The westbound I-10 on ramps at Loop 202; Chandler Boulevard; and Ray, Warner and Elliot roads will be closed, according to the release.

ADOT anticipates the first phase of the project will continue through early September, according to the release. Crews are removing the asphalt from I-10 in the project boundaries between Loop 202 and I-17 and from US 60 at I-10 where ADOT will improve the interchange, according to the release. The driving surfaces will be restored after construction is completed in late 2024.


The second of the summer weekend closures is scheduled to occur on eastbound I-10 between US 60 and Loop 202 from 10 p.m. July 30 through 4 a.m. Aug. 2, according to the release.
