Do you know what to do if you’re in an accident?

Freeway construction restrictions in the Phoenix area will be limited this weekend (July 21-24), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Weather permitting, westbound Interstate 10 overnight restrictions at 59th Avenue in west Phoenix will resume on Sunday evening and continue next week.

ADOT says drivers should allow extra travel time, consider alternate routes and use caution in work zones while the following restrictions are in place:

Interstate 10 at 59th Avenue 

CLOSURE: Westbound I-10 narrowed to one lane overnight at 59th Avenue from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday (July 24) for bridge construction at Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway interchange. Westbound I-10 also closed for brief periods at 59th Avenue during overnight hours.

DETOUR: When intermittent westbound I-10 closures are needed, traffic will detour along off- and on-ramps at 59th Avenue. Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes. This restriction is also scheduled Monday through Thursday nights (July 24-28).

Interstate 17 between Dunlap Avenue and Bethany Home Road

CLOSURE: Southbound I-17 narrowed to two lanes (left lanes closed) overnight between Dunlap Avenue and Bethany Home Road from 7 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday (July 23) for overhead sign improvements.

DETOUR: Please allow extra travel time and be prepared to merge safely when approaching the work zone. Watch for highway workers and equipment.
