    The more times you take to the trails at Sabino Canyon, the more likely you are to come across wildlife. "I'm out here every day," said Ben Markwart, who was running through the area on Wednesday. Markwart isn't a stranger to Sabino Canyon.  His friend Kevin Cross joined him on Wednesday. Cross frequents the area a few times a week.

PHOENIX, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Drivers using I-10 between Tucson and Phoenix this weekend should plan for construction closures Friday and Saturday night.

Crews will pave the highway between Casa Grande and Chandler starting at 8 p.m. on Friday. This work will continue through Saturday morning at 8. Then, on Saturday night the roadwork will start again at 8 p.m., lasting to 8 a.m. on Sunday.

Delays should be especially heavy around 11 p.m. as workers improve the asphalt on I-10 near Riggs Road.

If you're traveling west and want to bypass Phoenix, you can detour on Interstate 8 then heading north on State Route 85 at Gila Bend to get back to I-10.

Heading east towards Tucson, drivers can travel south on State Route 85 and then east on I-8 to avoid I-10 restrictions.

Remember to always drive carefully in all cone zones and watch for construction workers and equipment.
