Weekend freeway work will affect drivers along eastbound I-10 in the Goodyear-Buckeye area, and state transportation officials also said travelers should allow extra time heading to Sky Harbor Airport due to road and ramp closures.
Here is what’s scheduled along Valley freeways Friday night, Sept. 29, until Monday morning, Oct. 2:
North- and southbound Loop 303 ramps to eastbound I-10 will be closed. The eastbound I-10 on-ramp at Perryville Road/187th Avenue also will be closed. Detours: Consider exiting ahead of the closure and using eastbound Van Buren Street or McDowell Road to Dysart Road to reconnect with I-10. Primary detours will be signed, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Eastbound MC 85 is another detour option. Southbound Loop 303 drivers can exit at Indian School or Thomas roads and use southbound Cotton Lane to eastbound McDowell Road. Traffic on northbound Cotton Lane/Loop 303 can exit to eastbound Van Buren Street (to travel beyond closure). Note: Crews will reopen sections of I-10 as the pavement sealing work progresses on Saturday.
Detours: Eastbound I-10 traffic exiting at Verrado Way will travel south to eastbound Yuma Road and can use northbound Cotton Lane to access eastbound I-10 beyond closure. Eastbound MC 85 is another detour option. Note: Crews will reopen sections of I-10 as the pavement sealing work progresses on Sunday.
The westbound Loop 202 ramp to Sky Harbor Boulevard (airport exit) will be closed.

For airport access from Loop 202, consider using southbound 44th Street.
