Six months into the Ina Road Interchange project and the work progresses on schedule. The Ina Road Interchange will open in about a year and a half, on pace with the hopes of the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Construction for the bridge pier columns has begun, and the installation of a storm drain on east side of I-10, another key part of the project, nears completion at an appropriate pace.

“The contractor is moving along on schedule,” said ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer Paki Rico.

Due to high temperatures, some asphalt work has been done at night, which caused an overnight road closure on the frontage road last week and closures may continue in the future. In areas affected by closures, law enforcement will help with confused motorists and those working on-site. 

The project will create changes to the roadways, some to take place in early 2019. West Ina Road at I-10, including the east and westbound I-10 on and off-ramps at Ina, will close the longest—until early 2019. Although access remains limited, West Ina Road east and west of I-10 remains open, and ADOT will maintain access to all businesses in the work zone for the duration of the project.
