Loop 101 ramps at Chaparral Road reopened following reconstruction work

PHOENIX — There’s good news for many Loop 101 commuters in the Scottsdale area. Drivers are again able to use the on- and off-ramps at the Chaparral Road interchange near Scottsdale Community College, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Crews reopened the Loop 101 ramps at Chaparral Road Thursday night (Nov. 12), following two months of improvement work. The ramps were reconstructed to fit with the new freeway lanes being added as part of the Loop 101 widening project between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway).

Meanwhile, ADOT anticipates the southbound Loop 101 off- and on-ramps at Thomas Road, which closed in September, will reopen by late this month. All four of the Loop 101 on- and off-ramps at Via De Ventura, which closed in October for reconstruction, are due to reopen by late December.

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.
