PHOENIX – A stretch of westbound Loop 101 in north Phoenix will be closed this weekend (April 16-19) for the ongoing Pima Freeway widening project, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while the following weekend freeway restrictions are in place:

  • Westbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) closed between State Route 51 and Seventh Street from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (April 19) for widening project. Northbound SR 51 ramp to westbound Loop 101 closed. Westbound Loop 101 on-ramps at 56th Street and Cave Creek Road closed. Northbound SR 51 ramp to Black Mountain Boulevard will remain open.
