PHOENIX – Ongoing work to install new traffic-flow sensors will require overnight closures of sections of southbound Interstate 17 in the Phoenix area Monday through Thursday nights (May 22-25).

Southbound I-17 on-ramp at Glendale Avenue also closed. DETOUR: Consider alternate routes, including southbound State Route 51. Southbound I-17 traffic also can detour along frontage road.

Southbound I-17 on-ramp at Bethany Home Road also closed. DETOUR: Consider alternate routes, including southbound State Route 51. Southbound I-17 traffic also can detour along frontage road.
