I-17 to be closed intermittently for power line work


ANTHEM – Interstate 17 will be closed briefly in both directions at times between Anthem Way and New River Road on Saturday and Sunday mornings for APS power line work.

The Arizona Department of Transportation reported that drivers on I-17 should expect intermittent closures lasting up to 15 minutes each time between 2 a.m. and noon on Saturday, March 4 and between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sunday, March 5.

ADOT says drivers should allow extra travel time and be prepared for slowing or stopped traffic when the intermittent closures are taking place. DPS officers will conduct what are known as rolling closures of the highway as needed for the power line work.
