I-10 eastbound Speedway off ramp open

Driving to work today I saw that the Speedway off ramp on eastbound Interstate 10 was open. I didn’t notice if the Grant Road off ramp was open also.

I have a call¬† in to the on-call ADOT media relations person (today’s a holiday for state workers) to see if this is just for the July 4th celebration downtown this weekend or if it’s permanent. I’ll update the post if I hear from him or her.

If permanent, this would be the first off ramp opened since all off and on ramps were closed in June 2007 between Prince Road and 29th Street. Earlier this year, ADOT opened westbound I-10 on ramps at Grant Road and Miracle Mile.

Our long transportation nightmare is slowing coming to an end.

UPDATE: Heard from the ADOT spokeswoman.  The of ramp was opened Thursday morning and is permanent. Other on and off ramps will open in the coming weeks as the improvements are completed.
