| 8/21/2008

If you’re driving through Tucson, AZ, Thursday night, Aug. 21, you might want to plan your route carefully or find another way around.

All lanes of Interstate 10 between Prince Road and 29th Street will be closed Thursday night beginning at 10 p.m. The road will remain closed until Monday, Aug. 25, at 5 a.m.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the highway is being closed as part of a $200 million, three-year project to widen the interstate to four lanes in each direction.

During the closure, crews will be working on building transition areas for the next phase of the construction. Traffic will be detoured to the eastbound and westbound frontage roads.

When the road is reopened on Monday, it will be limited to two lanes in each direction.
