ADOT: I-10 Closure on April 8th
The Arizona Department of Transportation will close both directions of Interstate 10 east of Tucson and west of Benson from 9 p.m. April 8 until 7 a.m. April 9 to provide a safe work zone for the removal of the old Marsh Station Bridge.
The closure will take place between State Route 83 east of Tucson (Exit 281) and SR 90 near Benson (Exit 302) to allow crews to remove the bridge.
During the demolition project, motorists will be guided by signs through a 67-mile detour around the closure. Drivers can expect up to two hours of additional travel time. ADOT strongly advises the public to avoid this segment of I-10 during the closure.
Detour for eastbound I-10
Eastbound I-10 traffic will detour to SR 83 (Exit 281), travel south to SR 82 in Sonoita, turn left (east) on SR 82 to the SR 90 intersection in Whetstone, turn left (north) onto SR 90 and follow signs to reconnect with I-10 near Benson (Exit 302).
Detour for westbound I-10
Westbound I-10 traffic will detour from the interstate at SR 90 (Exit 302), travel south to the SR 82 intersection in Whetstone, turn right (west) on SR 82 and travel to SR 83 in Sonoita, turn right (north) on SR 83 to reconnect with I-10 at Exit 281.
The demolition and removal of this bridge is part of a $10 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project and ADOT's continued investment in Arizona's interstate highway system. The project includes the extension of Marsh Station Road, drainage improvements and the realignment of approximately three miles of the Union Pacific Railroad line to the north of I-10.
