As part of the ongoing widening project (more on that below), lane closures on Loop 101 are announced by ADOT as needed. There are currently no closures, though the lanes and shoulders are narrow in both directions. This page will be updated as new lane closures are announced.
The Loop 101 Project
The 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.
