The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers who travel Interstate 17 and State Route 69 near Cordes Junction to plan for overnight ramp closures beginning Monday, Aug. 10.
Motorists should allow extra travel time while the following restrictions are in place:
- The northbound I-17 off-ramp (Exit 262) will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday, Aug. 10, and Tuesday, Aug. 11. Detour: Drivers can use Arcosanti Road (Exit 263). Flaggers will be in place directing traffic to access SR 69 and businesses.
- The southbound SR 69 on-ramp to I-17 will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 11, and Wednesday, Aug. 12. Detour: Drivers can use Arcosanti Road. Flaggers will be in place directing traffic to access I-17.
The closures are needed for maintenance crews and contractors to complete crack-seal work, which protects and extends the life of the pavement.
ADOT advises drivers to slow down and use caution around personnel and equipment while pavement repairs are underway
