Transportation officials have issued a warning about a construction-related freeway closure for motorists traveling to the West Valley this weekend.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Sunday, westbound Interstate 10 will be closed between 51st and 67th avenues due to bridge construction at the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

There will be a detour either south to Van Buren Street or north to McDowell Road and return to I-10 westbound at 67th Avenue, according to ADOT.

Eastbound I-10 will only have three open lanes between 43rd and 51st avenues from 9 p.m. Friday until noon Sunday. ADOT suggests alternate routes, such as Loop 101 west of I-17.

The roads will be reopened before the Arizona Cardinals’ game on Sunday.
