PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation’s Ehrenberg Port of Entry on Interstate 10 is temporarily reducing hours of operation and making other changes to accommodate ongoing construction at the commercial port.
As of Monday, March 5, the port serving commercial vehicles entering Arizona from California will be open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday rather than the current hours of 6 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.
With the port undergoing a $14.5 million renovation, commercial drivers will use the same exit (milepost 3.8) but will purchase permits and use scales at a temporary location, guided there by signs.
Commercial drivers can save time by purchasing permits online at adotepro.azdot.gov. They also can get permits at the Parker Port of Entry on State Route 95 (call 928.575.1542 to inquire about hours of operation).
Construction at the port is creating a new operations building, credential booths and an auxiliary exit lane on eastbound I-10. Work is scheduled to be complete this summer.
Sworn officers with ADOT’s Enforcement and Compliance Division conduct inspections to make sure commercial vehicles are safe to drive on Arizona’s highways and have proper permits.
