TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation is closing portions of I-10 in Tucson so a utility company can do some overhead power line work.

According to Tucson Electric, crews will be installing a new transmission line that will strengthen electrical system reliability by linking the DeMoss-Petrie (DMP) Substation, located near I-10 and W. Grant Rd., to the Tucson Substation, located near W. 5th St. and North 11th Ave.

The closures of I-10 in both directions will take place every Sunday for the next month, with the exception of April 20, which is Easter Sunday.  The dates for closures will be April 6, 13, 27 and May 4.

Drivers who are out of town and traveling back on Sunday will notice the closures that will begin at 8 p.m. Sunday and last until 5 a.m. on Monday.  I-10 being closed until 5 a.m. may also affect the early morning commuters the most. 

Drivers will be detoured off the interstate to the frontage road to get around the work crews.
