Work continues on Loop 303

The Loop 303 is “growing up” right before our eyes.

It seems like just yesterday we were blogging about the massive amount of dirt that would need to be moved for construction of the stretch between Mountain View Boulevard and Peoria Avenue – now, that portion is all finished.

Other sections are coming along, too.  

ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer Michelle Thompson discusses in the video above that the section between Thomas and Camelback roads is nearly completed (it just needs rubberized asphalt). The Camelback Road to Glendale Avenue segment is expected to be done in summer 2014. Then, there’s the stretch between Glendale and Peoria avenues…  

“It’s three lanes in each direction, it has the rubberized asphalt and it’s good to go,” Thompson says.  

While we’re excited to witness the transformation from a two-lane roadway into a modern, urban freeway, we also are very interested to hear how the completed Loop 303 will impact the surrounding communities. Surprise Mayor Sharon Wolcott does a great job of explaining the project’s significance.  

“I think the best thing about the 303 right now is that it gives our community more choice,” Mayor Wolcott says in the video. “We’ve been lacking that choice, that connectivity, for a very long time … wow, what a difference now.”
