Flooding has closed both directions of Interstate 17 at Buckeye Road, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
ADOT advises drivers to exit well ahead of the area to avoid lengthy delays. Drivers on southbound I-17 should consider exiting onto I-10 eastbound at the “Stack” Interchange west of downtown Phoenix, while drivers on northbound I-17 should consider exiting onto I-10 westbound at the “Split” Interchange by Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
There is no estimated time to reopen I-17.
Flooding has also closed the Greenway Road underpass at I-17.
