Loop 101 ramps at Chaparral Road to close for two months starting Sunday night (Sept. 13)

Freeway-widening work includes reconstructing ramps

PHOENIX — Drivers who normally use the Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) on- and off-ramps at Chaparral Road in the Scottsdale area should plan on using other nearby interchanges for the next two months, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

All four of the Loop 101 ramps at Chaparral Road are scheduled to be temporarily closed at approximately 10 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 13) as part of the ongoing freeway-widening project between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway).

The ramps at Chaparral Road will be reconstructed to fit into the path of the wider freeway. They are due to reopen to traffic by mid-November.

Chaparral Road will remain open to through traffic under Loop 101 unless work requires temporary closures.

Drivers are encouraged to use ramps at other nearby interchanges, including Indian School Road or McDonald Drive.

ADOT reopened the ramps at Indian Bend Road last night (Thursday, Sept. 10). The Loop 101 ramps at 90th Street were closed last month and are due to reopen in October.

ADOT has worked with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and the city of Scottsdale in coordinating the ramp closures to limit the impact on local traffic conditions.

The work is part of the $73 million project to add new right lanes along Loop 101 between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway). The entire project is scheduled for completion next year.

Project schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather.
