Work on Loop 101 widening project is underway

If your commute includes the Loop 101 between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 (Red Mountain), you’ve probably noticed the start of some construction work…

It’s all part of a project we told you about last month that will add one new lane in each direction. There’s also a new northbound Loop 101 lane that will be constructed between the Loop 202 interchange and McDowell Road to improve freeway-to-freeway traffic flow. Other features, including merge lanes, lighting, signs and rubberized asphalt are a part of the plans too.

Get all the project details in our previous post. You can also check out our latest video (the one at the top of this page!) to see what drivers should expect through the project’s duration.
