Ina Road to Close at I-10 for Two Years Beginning Tomorrow

For the next 25 months or so, motorists will not be able to pass under Interstate 10 on Ina Road or exit from the interstate in either direction. Ina Road at I-10, including the east and westbound on- and off-ramps at Ina, will close at 1 a.m. Wednesday. The westbound I-10 frontage road from the Orange Grove on-ramp to Cortaro Road is scheduled to close at the same time, according to an Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) news release. Ina Road east and west of I-10 will remain open during the closure, and ADOT will ensure that all businesses in the work zone are accessible throughout the project.

The closure is part of a reconstruction project, designed to improve traffic flow in the area by widening I-10 and adding an extra lane in each direction and widening Ina from Silverbell Road to Camino de la Cruz.

Managed by ADOT, the project is funded by the $2.1 billion Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) plan approved by voters in 2006.
