A section of the Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway in Phoenix will be closed for part of this weekend (Nov. 11-14) for a freeway-improvement project. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends drivers allow extra travel time, use caution and consider alternate routes while the following scheduled restriction is in place:

  • Eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) closed between Interstate 10 and 44th Street in Phoenix from 9 p.m. Friday to 11 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 12) for resurfacing. All I-10 ramps to eastbound Loop 202 at the State Route 51 “Mini-Stack” interchange closed. Southbound SR 51 ramp to eastbound Loop 202 will remain open but traffic will need to exit at 32nd Street and use alternate routes. Consider using I-10 in either direction to northbound SR 143 (Hohokam Expressway) to access Loop 202. I-10 traffic also can connect with northbound SR 51 and exit to eastbound Thomas Road before using local streets to reach eastbound Loop 202 beyond the closure at 44th Street.

Additional freeway-restriction information will be posted at azdot.gov, under ADOT News. Visit the site to also subscribe to ADOT email updates, including weekend restriction information.

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.
