Get ready for Ruthrauff

Feb. 12, 2020 - Ruthrauff Road is about to be the recipient of a major facelift, courtesy the Regional Transportation Authority, Arizona Department of Transportation and voters who approved the project and funding. Construction of the Ruthrauff Road Traffic Interchange is right on schedule per the RTA plan.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is managing the $129 million project. ADOT plans to close Ruthrauff Road at Interstate 10 for up to two years starting Friday, Feb. 14, 2020. All ramps between I-10 and Ruthrauff Road/El Camino del Cerro will close except for the westbound I-10 off-ramp to allow for access to westbound I-10 frontage road businesses only.

The interchange will be reconstructed to improve traffic flow in the area. Ruthrauff Road/El Camino del Cerro will be raised to go over the railroad tracks, Davis Avenue/Highway Drive and I-10. Business access will be maintained throughout the project as well as access to the Chuck Huckleberry Loop.

Throughout the project, drivers will need to use alternate routes to access I-10. Detours will be clearly marked.
