1:10 p.m.

Eastbound Interstate 10 has reopened in central Phoenix after being closed for about two hours for repairs to Deck Park Tunnel overhead lights damaged by a high-profile tractor-trailer rig.

Westbound I-10 remained open.

12:10 a.m.

Eastbound Interstate 10 is closed at Interstate 17 in central Phoenix so crews can repair overhead lights damaged by a high-profile tractor-trailer rig in the Deck Park Tunnel.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says it doesn’t have a time estimate for lifting the closure that began late Wednesday morning.

ADOT says the damage occurred early Wednesday morning.

Eastbound traffic on I-10 can use southbound I-17 to detour around the closure and reconnect with I-10 near Sky Harbor International Airport.

Westbound I-10 remains open.
