Loop 202 East closed between I-10 and 44th St. for part of weekend

Drivers can use alternate routes during closure for resurfacing work

PHOENIX – The eastbound lanes of Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) will be closed between Interstate 10 and 44th Street in Phoenix from Friday night until late Saturday night (Nov. 12) for resurfacing work.

Drivers should plan ahead and use alternate routes while eastbound Loop 202 is closed, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The weekend closure is scheduled as follows:

Eastbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) closed between I-10 and 44th Street from 9 p.m. Friday to 11 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 12) for resurfacing. The east- and westbound I-10 ramps to eastbound Loop 202 at the SR 51 “Mini-Stack” interchange also closed. The southbound SR 51 ramp to eastbound Loop 202 will be open but traffic will need to exit at 32nd Street and use alternate routes. DETOUR: Drivers can consider using I-10 in either direction to northbound SR 143 (Hohokam Expressway) to access Loop 202. Westbound I-10 traffic also can connect with northbound SR 51 and exit to eastbound Thomas Road before using local streets to reach eastbound Loop 202 beyond the closure at 44th Street.
