ADOT to host meetings about planned Van Buren Street to MC 85 project

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation will hold two public meetings next week (May 10 and May 11) to provide information, gather comments and answer questions about plans for a new four-mile segment of Loop 303 south of Interstate 10 in the Goodyear area.

The meeting on May 10 will be held at Desert Edge High School while a virtual meeting is scheduled on May 11.

The Loop 303 project, currently in design with construction targeted to start in 2025, would build three lanes in each direction between Van Buren Street and Lower Buckeye Road and two lanes in each direction between Lower Buckeye Road and Maricopa County 85. Other additions, including new or improved interchange connections, also are planned.
