Eastbound Loop 101 will closed between 7th Avenue and 7th Street in north Phoenix from 10 p.m. Friday, July 19 to 5 a.m. Monday (July 22) for bridge work as part of freeway widening project, ADOT announced.

Both I-17 ramps to eastbound Loop 101 will also be closed, as well as eastbound Loop 101 on-ramps at 19th Avenue, Seventh Avenue and Beardsley Road just east of 27th Avenue. DETOUR: Expect heavy traffic and delays. Alternate routes include eastbound Deer Valley Road or Union Hills Drive. Eastbound Loop 101 traffic exiting at Seventh Avenue can detour along frontage road.

Also: The 15th Avenue bridge over the Pima Freeway remains closed to north- and southbound traffic through late 2020 for reconstruction and other improvements.

Down the road…

The eastbound Loop 101 will be closed between Cave Creek Road and State Route 51 from 10 p.m. Friday, July 26, to 5 a.m. Monday, July 29.

The overall project, expected to be completed in early 2021, will address bottlenecks along the Loop 101 at I-17, Cave Creek Road, State Route 51, and Tatum Boulevard, officials say. According to ADOT, here are some of the overall project plans:

  • Add one general purpose lane in each direction between I-17 and Pima Road
  • Add an auxiliary lane in each direction between Seventh Street and Cave Creek Road
  • Modify freeway ramps and frontage road connections at 10 interchanges

The project also will include installation of quieter rubberized asphalt overlay, drainage improvements, unspecified technological upgrades, and other improvements.
