Motorists on Interstate 10 near Ina Road should expect lane restrictions for a traffic shift the night of Saturday, Jan. 27.

The following restrictions are scheduled from 10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, to 5 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 28, to allow crews to place concrete barrier and perform striping work:

  • Westbound I-10 will be reduced to one lane between Orange Grove and Cortaro roads (mileposts 250-247).
  • The left lane of eastbound I-10 will be closed between Cortaro and Orange Grove roads.
  • The on-ramp from Orange Grove Road to westbound I-10 will close. Drivers will be directed to Sunset Road to access westbound I-10.

The travel restrictions will allow crews to switch westbound traffic from the westbound frontage road to the newly constructed travel lanes that will ultimately be used by eastbound traffic.  Both east- and westbound drivers will utilize the newly constructed lanes while the westbound half of the traffic interchange is replaced.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction equipment and personnel. 

The project to reconstruct the interchange at I-10 and Ina Road includes an overpass of I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. In addition, both I-10 and Ina Road will be widened in the project area. Learn more on the project website.

Managed by ADOT, the project is funded by the Regional Transportation Authority of Pima County. The voter-approved, $2.1 billion RTA plan will be implemented through 2026. Details about the full plan are available at RTAmobility.com.
