Drivers who plan to use southbound Interstate 17 near Daisy Mountain Drive in the Anthem area Friday night, June 4, through Saturday, June 5, should allow extra travel time and consider detours for a paving project, according to a news release from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT).

Southbound I-17 is scheduled to be narrowed to one left lane between Daisy Mountain Drive and Pioneer Road in north Phoenix from 9 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday for resurfacing. The southbound I-17 on-ramp at Pioneer Road will be closed.

In addition to allowing extra time, drivers can plan to use alternate routes, ADOT stated. If exiting southbound I-17 at Anthem Way or Daisy Mountain Drive, drivers can consider using southbound Gavilan Peak/North Valley parkways to Carefree Highway in order to reach I-17 beyond the paving work zone.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov or by calling 511. Also check ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT.

When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, the free app for ADOT Alerts, available at ADOTAlerts.com, will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas — where possible, in advance of alternate routes.
