As part of the ongoing widening project (more on that below), here is the latest from ADOT on closures:

Westbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) closed between Pima Road/Princess Drive and Scottsdale Road from 10 p.m. Friday, March 22 to 5 a.m. Monday, March 25 for placement of temporary barrier and lane-stripe adjustments as part of a freeway widening project.

Expect heavy traffic and use alternate routes. DETOUR: Alternate routes include (1) taking westbound Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and re-entering the freeway at Scottsdale Road, 56th Street, Tatum Boulevard or State Route 51; and (2) exiting Pima Road/Princess Drive, traveling north on Pima Road, west on Thompson Peak Parkway and south on Scottsdale Road to re-enter Loop 101.

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.
