The next closure is also in west Phoenix.

The I-10 eastbound is closed overnight at 59th Avenue for construction of Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange. This closure takes place Sunday 11 a.m. till Monday 5 a.m. Please allow extra travel time and use surface streets to detour around this closure on the 10.

The closure starts Friday 9 p.m. till Saturday 5 a.m. In addition to this closure the Loop 202 westbound on-ramp at 32nd Street and off-ramp at 24th Street are also closed.
