According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, a major step was taken on Thursday night to complete the $ 129 million Interstate Highway 10-Laslav Road interchange.

The crew has opened a new bridge to carry vehicles to Ruslav / El Camino del Camino across the I-10 and Union Pacific Railroad tracks, eliminating the need to stop vehicles for trains that frequently enter and leave the area. ..

Temporary lane restrictions remain in Ruthrauff as the crew continues to work to widen the road into two lanes in each direction.



Workers will place pedestrian sidewalk rebars on the Ruthrauff Road Bridge on Interstate 10 on Friday.


According to ADOT, the I-10 lamp that connects the driver to the interchange remains closed and will open in the coming months. The crew will need to rebuild the slopes and frontage roads to bring all the traffic onto the tracks.

By late fall, according to ADOT, drivers will use the extended I-10 with four lanes in each direction, the wide Laslav Road, and Davis Avenue and Highway Drive under Laslav to carry the driver underpass. I plan to use it.

Transportation then connects to Laslauf using local roads and Maryvale Avenue.
