PHOENIX – Two additional Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) ramps at Scottsdale and Hayden roads in north Scottsdale will be closed for approximately 60 days starting Monday night, June 24, for an ongoing freeway widening project.

The eastbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Scottsdale Road and eastbound off-ramp at Hayden Road are scheduled to close at 9 p.m. Monday and remain closed until late-August for work related to the Arizona Department of Transportation’s $185 million project to add lanes and make other improvements along the freeway.

Drivers who normally use the eastbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Scottsdale Road should consider alternate routes, including eastbound on-ramps at 64th Street or Hayden Road. Motorists who normally exit eastbound Loop 101 at Hayden Road should consider using the exits at Scottsdale Road or Pima Road/Princess Drive.

The temporary ramp closures will allow crews to prepare for the upcoming construction of new Loop 101 bridges to carry freeway traffic over a future section of Miller Road, which the city of Scottsdale plans to extend north of Loop 101. 

Two other Loop 101 ramps were closed last week. The westbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Hayden Road and westbound off-ramp at Scottsdale Road are scheduled to reopen by mid-August.

The Loop 101 Pima Freeway Improvement Project is adding new travel lanes in areas along 13 miles of the freeway between Interstate 17 in north Phoenix and Pima Road/Princess Drive in north Scottsdale.

The project started in February 2019 and is scheduled for completion in early 2021.
