Please note that the new ADOT speed cameras will probably affect us more than anyone. Some will say that this is a good thing, but I just want to make sure that Laveen's speed demon contingent doesn't get in trouble. So please spread the word. (Note that it is the lower I-17 loop, I-10 east of 51st, and 101 north - almost all the freeways that we would typically use to get in/out of our area).
The following closures are for DPS photo enforcement camera installation this weekend:
- Northbound Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) closed between Glendale and Northern avenues from 11 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday (Nov. 1). DETOUR: Traffic will exit at Glendale Avenue and take 91st or 99th avenues north to Northern Avenue.
- Southbound 1-17 closed between the I-10 "Stack" and 24th Street from 10 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday (Nov. 1). DETOUR: I-17 traffic can detour on eastbound I-10 through the Deck Park Tunnel.
- Eastbound I-10 closed between 59th and 19th avenues from 10 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday (Nov. 2). DETOUR: Traffic can detour south to Buckeye Road to 19th Avenue to reconnect with I-10.
