The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is currently working on a project to provide the traveling public with increased connectivity at the Loop 303 / Interstate10 interchange. The $63 million project includes several new ramps, structures/bridges, improvements at Van Buren Street and Cotton Lane, improvements to the frontage roads, rubberized asphalt and pavement markings.
The project is being constructed in three stages to minimize impacts. Some stages of construction will overlap.
The first stage of construction includes building the following:
- Northbound Loop 303 ramp that connects to westbound I-10
- Westbound I-10 ramp that connects to southbound Loop 303
- Intersection and drainage improvements at Van Buren Street
As construction activities continue on the first stage, crews have begun work on stage two construction activities as follows:
- Removing the fill from underneath the eastbound I-10 ramp to southbound Loop 303
- Constructing the southbound frontage road from the existing westbound frontage (north of I-10) to Van Buren Street
- Once the southbound frontage road is constructed, both northbound and southbound traffic will use the new southbound frontage road and Cotton Lane will be closed in mid- to-late February 2017 between Van Buren Street and the westbound frontage road
- Constructing the Loop 303 freeway between McDowell Road and Van Buren Street
- Constructing the northbound frontage road
- Constructing the northbound Loop 303 ramp to eastbound I-10
- Completing the Van Buren Street interchange (late February 2017)
