Twenty-two miles of new pavement needed prior to late 2019 opening

You’ve got to start somewhere.

And for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, “somewhere” is near Elliot Road and 59th Avenue in Laveen, where the first lane mile of pavement is in place for the state’s largest single highway project ever.

Laying pavement began in late July and has occurred in one of the flattest stretches of the South Mountain Freeway project, from north of Estrella Drive to Olney Avenue.

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers in the north Valley to use caution on I-17 at Happy Valley and Deer Valley roads this weekend. The following restrictions are scheduled to be in place:

Northbound exit to Deer Valley Road from the Loop 101 ramps at the I-17 interchange closed from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (June 23-24) for city of Phoenix pavement-improvement work on Deer Valley Road. The northbound I-17 on-ramp at Deer Valley Road also will be closed. Expect lane restrictions along Deer Valley Road between 19th Avenue and I-17. DETOUR: Consider using Rose Garden Lane or Pinnacle Park Road as alternate routes.
The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers to plan for traffic restrictions over the next two weeks beginning Thursday, June 21, as part of the improvement project on the US 60 from State Route 77 to 40th Street in Show Low.

Motorists should use caution and allow plenty of extra travel time while the following restrictions are in place:

Drivers can expect restrictions, delays this week and next week

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation will be conducting final paving on a newly widened stretch of US 60 between State Route 77 and 40th Street in Show Low beginning Thursday, June 21.

ADOT to host open house at Goodyear Ballpark in West Valley

The Arizona Department of Transportation has scheduled an open house public hearing at Goodyear Ballpark in the West Valley on Wednesday, June 27, to gather comments about the findings of the draft environmental study for the planned Loop 303 freeway extending south between Van Buren Street and the proposed State Route 30.

The draft study has identified a preferred alternative for an alignment of Loop 303 south of Van Buren Street, formally known as Alternative 2C South. ADOT’s study team will continue to evaluate the preferred alternative as well as a “no build” option for Loop 303.

New roadway part of Loop 202/I-10 interchange construction in West Valley

A newly-built roadway adjacent to Interstate 10 in the West Valley will open to traffic this week, restoring 59th Avenue access after Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway construction required a permanent shift in traffic flow.

After the westbound I-10 off-ramp at 59th Avenue was closed and removed last month to make room for connecting ramps leading to and from the new freeway-to-freeway interchange, I-10 westbound motorists looking to access 59th Avenue have been forced to exit the freeway at 51st Avenue and detour to connect with 59th Avenue.
