Improvement projects will require restrictions, including ramp closures, along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend (April 29-May 2). Project schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends planning ahead and considering alternate routes while the following scheduled restrictions are in place:

  • Southbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) narrowed to three lanes (right lanes closed) between Cactus Road and 90th Street from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Sunday (May 1) for rubberized asphalt paving. Southbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Cactus Road, off- and on-ramps at Shea Boulevard and off-ramp at 90th Street closed. Plan to use alternate ramps in area, including those at Raintree Drive and Via de Ventura.

Please allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes if possible. Northbound Loop 303 on-ramp and southbound off-ramp at Grand Avenue closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday (May 1) for paving. Alternate routes while ramps are closed include exiting southbound Loop 303 at Bell Road and turning to enter northbound Loop 303. Drivers can then exit at Grand Avenue.

ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes and other improvements as part of the Regional Transportation Plan for the Maricopa County region. The primary funding source for regional freeway improvements is a half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2004.
