Loop 202 (Santan Freeway), Loop 101 to Val Vista Drive

Loop 202 (Santan Freeway), Loop 101 to Val Vista Drive



The Arizona Department of Transportation in collaboration with the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has initiated a project to widen and make other improvements to the Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) between Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and Val Vista Drive in the city of Chandler and town of Gilbert. 

The purpose of this project is to improve traffic capacity on Loop 202 to address growing traffic demands in the southeast Valley and relieve traffic congestion on Loop 202 during the morning and evening peak travel periods. Maricopa County is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States, with the population expected to increase by nearly 30 percent between 2020 and 2040. Traffic volume projections indicate congestion will worsen in the future due to growth in the region.
