Highway closures in Pennsylvania, Arizona this weekend

| Friday, August 22, 2008

If you’re going to either Pennsylvania or Arizona this weekend, there are a couple of road closures you need to know about.

An eight-mile stretch of the eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike between Irwin and New Stanton will be closed for six hours beginning at midnight Friday as crews install concrete beams for a new overpass.

The road is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. on Saturday. Traffic will be diverted onto Route 30 and toll Route 66 during the closure.

In Arizona, all lanes of Interstate 10 between Prince Road and 29th Street were closed down Thursday night and will remain closed until Monday, Aug. 25, at 5 a.m.

During the closure, drivers will be detoured to the eastbound and westbound frontage roads for the interstate. When the road is reopened on Monday, it will be limited to two lanes in each direction.
