Take a virtual drive on the South Mountain Freeway

By Dustin Krugel / ADOT Communications

Motorists won’t be able to drive the South Mountain Freeway until late 2019, but now you can visualize that trip using the simulation above that launched today at SouthMountainFreeway.com.

It includes some key additions since we shared a popular simulation in 2013:

  • aesthetic and landscaping treatments along the 22-mile freeway corridor
  • direct HOV lane access to and from downtown Phoenix at the freeway’s western end
  • a six-mile shared-use path along Pecos Road
  • interchange reconfigurations, including diverging diamond interchanges at Desert Foothills Parkway and 17th Avenue. 

You’ll find much more at SouthMountainFreeway.com, including traffic alerts, a way to sign up for project news, renderings showing aesthetics and construction photos.
