Traffic is expected this weekend in the Scottsdale area because the Phoenix Open is taking place this weekend in the TPC Scottsdale Golf Course.
Officials that are planning the event have stated that if you are not attending the event or can avoid the area, it may be a good idea to do so. There will be major road closures due to the event and drivers are urged to pay attention to signs because of the potential legal issues.
There will signs to tell drivers which areas are closed as well as signs that will tell attendees where they can park. Major closures will be at Hayden Road near Loop 101, Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, and Bell Road. The first round of the event begins today.
