ADOT to hold Loop 303 meeting in Sun City West on Wednesday (Feb. 26)

February 24, 2014

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation has scheduled a pair of informational meetings about three future Loop 303 improvement projects in the Sun Cities and Surprise area.

The trio of projects will widen Loop 303 to three lanes in each direction between Grand Avenue (US 60) and Happy Valley Parkway, improve the Grand Avenue/Loop 303 traffic interchange and construct a new interchange at the El Mirage Road connection with the freeway.

The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 26 – 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    Palm Ridge Recreation Center
    Summit Hall B
    13800 W. Deer Valley Drive
    Sun City West
  • Tuesday, March 11 – 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
    Sagebrush Ballroom
    19753 N. Remington Drive
    Surprise

ADOT project team members will be on hand to provide updates about the upcoming projects and answer questions from attendees. The projects are currently in various stages of design.

The project to widen approximately six miles of the freeway from four to six lanes (three in each direction) between US 60 and Happy Valley Parkway is expected to break ground this summer.

The two projects to improve the interchange at the Loop 303 and Grand Avenue and add an interchange with ramps at El Mirage Road are expected to start by early 2015. The three projects are scheduled for completion in 2016.

The projects are funded as part of the Maricopa Association of Governments’ 20-Year Regional Transportation Plan approved by county voters in 2004.
