Freeway-improvement projects will require closures or lane restrictions in the Phoenix metropolitan area this weekend (Feb. 26-29). The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends drivers plan ahead, consider alternate routes or adjust travel schedules and use caution in work zones while the following restrictions are in place:

  • Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) off-ramps temporarily closed (one at a time) in areas between Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and Broadway Road in Mesa from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 27-28) for sign and pavement marking work. Expect individual off-ramps to be closed for approximately one hour each time. Be prepared to use other nearby exit ramps if necessary.
  • Northbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) off-ramp at Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale closed overnight from 10 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 27) for widening project. Northbound Loop 101 on-ramp and southbound off-ramp at Shea Boulevard closed overnight from 10 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Sunday (Feb. 28) for widening project. Consider using other nearby ramps, including those at 90th Street or Cactus Road.
  • Northbound Interstate 17 narrowed to one lane overnight between Seventh Avenue and Adams Street from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday (Feb. 29) for pavement repair. Northbound I-17 on- and off-ramps in the area also closed at times. Consider using westbound I-10 in downtown Phoenix area as alternate overnight freeway route.

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. More information about ADOT projects and the regional plan is available at azdot.gov/PhoenixMetro.
