Work is being done on the Cordes Junction interchange at I-17 and SR 69 – 65 miles north of Phoenix.

Also,the Munds Park interchange, 20 miles south of Flagstaff, is going though a complete reconstruction. State transportation officials say the high elevation and cooler temperatures in the area between April and September make it the ideal season for construction work there. It could also mean traffic delays.
