Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) Pavement Preservation Project: Thunderbird Road to Interstate 17

The Arizona Department of Transportation is preparing for a pavement-preservation project on the Loop 101 (Agua Fria) Freeway) in the cities of Glendale and Peoria in Maricopa County. Work will occur on the Loop 101 from Thunderbird Road to the Interstate 17 traffic interchange and will impact both directions of travel and all on- and off-ramps in this work zone.

The project is scheduled to begin late Friday April 27, and be completed by the evening of Sunday, April 29.
