Currently, ADOT is in the process of acquiring the properties needed for the project. As part of that process, ADOT is removing structures on residential and commercial properties that ADOT has acquired along the freeway alignment.
ADOT is working very closely with the city of Phoenix on structures removal activity and traffic control, including the posting of work-zone traffic barricades and safety flagmen as necessary. Neighborhood access points will remain open and security personnel will monitor all acquired properties throughout the structures removal phase of the project to deter any criminal activity.
The Loop 202 freeway, also known as the South Mountain Freeway, will run east and west along Pecos Road and then turn north between 55th and 63rd avenues, connecting with Interstate 10 on each end. A video simulation of the freeway is provided below.
The South Mountain Freeway is the last piece to complete the Loop 202 and Loop 101 freeway system necessary for high-quality regional mobility.
The project has been a critical part of the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Freeway Program since it was first included in funding through Proposition 300 approved by Maricopa County voters in 1985. The freeway is also part of the Regional Transportation Plan funding passed by Maricopa County voters in 2004 through Proposition 400.
