TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Interstate 10 will completely shut down at St. Mary's Road overnight on both April 27 and May 4 for utility work. 

Crews will close the freeway from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on these two consecutive Sunday nights. 

Traffic heading eastbound towards Vail will have to exit at Speedway Blvd., use the frontage road, then reenter the interstate at Congress Street.  Cars driving west towards Phoenix will be detoured at Congress Street and can get back on I-10 at Speedway Boulevard. 

This work is part of a new Tucson Electric Power transmission line, which will link two of the company's substations in the area.

This should help reduce the length and frequency of power outages, as well as expand electricity capacity for new houses built on the west side. 

The entire construction project should be completed this summer.
