New freeway ramps improve mobility for West Valley drivers

L-303/I-10 ramps

By Caroline Carpenter / ADOT Communications

If you're out of the loop, you may have missed the opening of the new ramps at Interstate 10 and Loop 303 over the holiday weekend. West Valley drivers now have four additional direct connections between Loop 303 and Interstate 10 with the recent opening of the ramps.

Motorists have told us on social media they're excited about the improvements.

In addition to the new ramps, new frontage roads are complete between Sarival Avenue and Citrus Road and from McDowell to Van Buren. The frontage roads will help with the movement of local traffic and provide convenient local connections.

Ramp artConstruction on this portion of the project began in February 2016 and is part of the $64 million project to complete the large interchange connecting I-10 and Loop 303.

This phase of the project extended Loop 303 south of I-10 to Van Buren Street. This lays the groundwork for the next project, scheduled for fall 2019, extending Loop 303 from Van Buren south to Maricopa County Highway 85.

Ramp artThe newly opened ramps were funded as part of the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004. The primary funding sources are a countywide half-cent sales tax for transportation projects as well as the Phoenix region’s share of federal transportation funds.
