The westbound US 60 Mill Avenue on-ramp will be closed next week as the Arizona Department of Transportation and city of Tempe research steps to reduce the number of crashes that are occurring between Rural Road and Interstate 10. Drivers should plan ahead and use alternate routes such as Rural Road to access westbound US 60 while the following closure is in place:

The westbound US 60 on-ramp at Mill Avenue will be closed from 1 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, through 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18.

The closure will remain in place around the clock.

The closure is part of a Road Safety Assessment. Engineers will use data collected during the ramp closure to help prioritize future safety improvements along the west end of US 60. The dates of this closure were selected to allow ADOT and Tempe to examine traffic conditions on weekdays and on one weekend day.

Drivers in Tempe should use Rural Road to access westbound U.S. 60 when the Mill Avenue on-ramp is closed.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.
