Southerly view as I-17 passes beneath the Buckeye Road overpass.  South of Buckeye Road, I-17 curves 90 degrees to the east.  According to ArizonaRoads.com, one of the proposed alignments of I-10 would have met I-17 at the pictured 90 degree curve.  The Black Canyon Freeway designation ends at this curve, beyond the curve, I-17 is known as the Maricopa Freeway.  The Maricopa Freeway continues east beyond the end of I-17 along I-10's alignment.

Northbound view through the Grant Street overpass.  One would think that that what appears to be white paint on the hazard makers of the bridge abutment and pier were originally painted yellow and have since faded..

Northerly view at the McDowell Road overpass.  The fly-over ramp from I-10 East to I-17 North soars overtop of McDowell Road in a way reminiscent of some of the fly-overs that link the 105 and 110 Freeways in Los Angeles.

Northerly view through the Camelback Road overpass along I-17.  In my opinion, the Camelback Road overpass is the least aesthetically pleasing overpass within Metro Phoenix's freeway network.

Button copy signage at the off-ramp to Bell Road.  Note that the exit tab that corresponds to the Loop 101 interchange is not a button copy sign.  It would seem that sometime after the button copy signage was erected, the exit number for the Loop 101 interchange was changed.
