Labor Day weekend traffic: Look out for I-10, I-17 closures

There are no planned closures for Labor Day weekend, but there'll be plenty of traffic.

Thank you for visiting for your weekend traffic report. Here’s what you need to know for the Labor Day holiday weekend, September 1st-4th, 2017. Commuters will not have to deal with any freeway closures, but will see speed changes on a part of the I-17 this weekend.

Freeway closures and construction are on hold due to holiday travel.

If you plan on celebrating with an alcoholic beverage this holiday please find a designated driver or use another form of transportation while drinking. Law-enforcement agencies will be out in full-force with DUI patrols over Labor Day weekend.

Commuters will notice speed changes this weekend on a stretch of the I-17 to reduce crashes and delays resulting from speeding and driver inattention. I-17 northbound speed limits are reduced by 10 miles between New River and the Sunset Point Rest Area on Friday and southbound on the same stretch of I-17 on Monday.

Thank you for stopping by and have a fun and safe weekend!
