Thank you for visiting 12news.com for the weekend traffic report. Here’s what you need to know for this weekend, March 2-5, 2018. Commuters will experience a freeway ramp closure and a few restrictions this weekend.
The Loop 101 northbound off- and on-ramps at Peoria Avenue is closed for pavement improvements Friday 9 p.m. till noon Sunday. Peoria Avenue is also narrowed to one lane in both directions between 91st and 95th avenues near the Loop 101 interchange. Please allow extra travel time and consider using other ramps nearby including Olive or Grand avenues.
The I-10 westbound off-ramp at 59th Avenue will be closed permanently starting late Friday night for the Loop 202 interchange construction. Drivers can use the 67th Avenue exit during the closure.
I-10 westbound is narrowed to 3 lanes between 43rd and 59th avenues Friday 10 p.m. until Saturday 10 a.m. to allow crews to reopen the I-10 westbound off-ramp at 51st Avenue and close the westbound off-ramp at 59th Avenue for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange construction.

Loop 202 eastbound (Santan Freeway) is narrowed to one lane overnight between Higley and Power roads for temporary barrier wall removal Saturday 10 p.m. to Sunday 3:30 a.m. Please drive with caution and be prepared to slow down and merge safely when approaching work zones.
A weekly reminder that the Renaissance Festival is in town through April 1st, so the US 60 near Apache Junction and Gold Canyon areas will have heavier weekend traffic at times. Please allow extra travel time and be prepared for slow traffic. Use caution, especially near festival parking lot access points.
