Loop 101 Widening Project: Shea Boulevard to Loop 202

Other Projects

In addition to the general-purpose lane widening project, ADOT has other upcoming projects in the area of Loop 101 (Pima Freeway).

Black Mountain Boulevard

Black Mountain Boulevard (BMB) is a project in the city of Phoenix that will connect the Sonoran Boulevard/Cave Creek Road intersection to State Route 51 at Loop 101.

Construction is underway near Pinnacle H.S. on the initial project, which will be constructed in two phases. When completed (Fall 2015), the project will connect SR 51 to Deer Valley Road.

Phase 1 schedule: Construction to be completed within the Pinnacle High School area by the end of summer break. Work will then move north to Rough Rider and Pinnacle Peak roads. Roundabout construction near Pinnacle H.S. will begin mid-September. All Phase 1 components to be completed in Fall 2014. Construction work will consist of 8-hr. days, Monday-Friday and some Saturday work, may be required.

Phase 2 schedule: TBD

Loop 101 Noisewall at Wildcat Ridge

ADOT is currently evaluating constructing a noisewall on the southern border of the Wildcat Ridge community, which is located near the SR 51 and Loop 101 traffic interchange.

The proposed noisewall would be over 500 feet long and built 12 to 18 feet south of the current six-foot community wall, which ADOT would leave in place.

The wall would be about 16 to 19 feet tall to ensure mitigation of current and future traffic noise per ADOT standards. It was designed using expected-growth data for Loop 101 traffic through 2035.

ADOT is conducting a poll of all Wildcat Ridge residents regarding the proposed construction of this noisewall on the southern border of the community.
