Traffic Alerts - Loop 303: Happy Valley Parkway to Lake Pleasant Parkway

Loop 303 shoulder closures needed from Happy Valley to Lake Pleasant parkways for project construction - January 26, 2021

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers who use Loop 303 in the far Northwest Valley of shoulder closures needed for the next two months between Happy Valley and Lake Pleasant parkways for construction of the new Loop 303 improvement project in this area.

The inside (left) shoulder is currently closed in both directions between approximately Lone Mountain and Lake Pleasant parkways through late February for widening. The inside shoulder will then be closed between Lone Mountain Parkway and north of Happy Valley Parkway from late February to late March. Additional shoulder restrictions will be needed through completion of the Loop 303 project, which is anticipated by early 2022.

Loop 303 improvements between Happy Valley and Lake Pleasant parkways include:

Constructing a third general purpose lane in each direction by widening in the median.

Constructing new bridges over the Beardsley Canal and Jomax Parkway for the new section of the Loop 303 freeway mainline.

Constructing the Jomax Parkway Traffic Interchange, which will connect to the future extension of Jomax Parkway west of Loop 303 to Vistancia Boulevard. The new roadway will be constructed by the city of Peoria, with construction expected to begin in March 2021.
