Interstate 17 north of Phoenix will be closed several nights a week well into next year so crews can blast rocks to make space for new lanes.

Segments of I-17 between Anthem Way and Sunset Point will be closed in both directions two to three nights a week, Mondays-Thursdays, for the next eight months, the Arizona Department of Transportation said Monday.

The first closures are set for 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, when I-17 will be shut down between Bumblebee Road and Sunset Point.
