All ramps are open at the Loop 303/I-10 traffic interchange

September 4, 2014

Have you heard the news? All four of the ramps connecting Loop 303 and I-10 are open!

We told you about the first two ramps (southbound Loop 303 to eastbound I-10 and eastbound I-10 to northbound Loop 303) last month. Shortly after that, the two additional ramps (westbound I-10 to northbound Loop 303 and southbound Loop 303 to westbound I-10) opened up to drivers on Aug. 24.

As you can see in the video above, there’s also a frontage road system connecting Sarival Avenue to Citrus Road – it is expected to open by mid-September and is the last piece of this phase of the interchange project. Phase II of the project, which will provide southbound access from I-10 to Van Buren Street, is currently in design and is expected to begin construction in 2016.

Looking back

Work on the interchange started in late 2011 and we’ve been covering the project’s progress along the way. We thought it might be fun to look back at some of those posts and videos. After you finish watching the video above, check out these links to learn more about:

Of course, the interchange is just one part of the improvements happening along the Loop 303 corridor. ADOT is working to improve Loop 303 to create a six-lane freeway with three general-purpose lanes in each direction between I-17 in Phoenix and I-10 in Goodyear.
