Phoenix and ADOT open Loop 101 interchange at 64th Street

City’s completion of 64th Street south of freeway allows traffic to connect to and from Mayo Boulevard

PHOENIX – The Loop 101 interchange at 64th Street in northeast Phoenix opened to traffic as planned today (May 18) following a city of Phoenix project to construct a new section of 64th Street between Mayo Boulevard and the Pima Freeway.

The Phoenix Street Transportation Department worked with the Arizona Department of Transportation on final preparations before crews opened the Loop 101 on- and off-ramps at 64th Street.

Phoenix activated new traffic signals at 64th Street and Mayo Boulevard last week. Traffic on the 64th Street Bridge is regulated by “all-way” stop signs.

The city’s contractor completed sign installation and lane-striping along eastbound Loop 101 approaching the interchange on Sunday.

The Loop 101 interchange at 64th Street was completed in 2008 as part of the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan approved by county voters in 2004. The opening of the on- and off-ramps was contingent upon the city’s plans for constructing 64th Street between the freeway and Mayo Boulevard.
