Machines doing construction on the Loop 303
If you’ve driven the Loop 303 recently, you know that construction is now in full swing from I-10 all the way up to Mountain View Boulevard near US 60 (Grand Avenue) …
Crews work on the new ramp connecting westbound Sky Harbor Boulevard to SR 143.
The improvements to SR 143 are really coming along. In fact, construction now is about 64 percent complete!
Loop 303 and Greenway Intersection
Accommodating existing traffic is a key priority when ADOT builds a freeway … Depending on the project, that can mean working out a construction schedule that takes rush hours into account or hiring extra crews to flag and direct traffic through the site.
Loop 303/Greenway intersection closure
Crews are going to move a lot of dirt as they widen Loop 303 in the West Valley. But, at one intersection, there’s a crucial bit of work that needs to get done before they can start digging! This weekend the Loop 303/Greenway Road intersection in Surprise will be closed beginning 10 p.m. Friday so crews can quickly re-align the intersection, install a temporary traffic signal and temporary sidewalk.
ADOT Heavy Machinery used to move dirt.
Before you can build a freeway, you’ve got to move a little dirt... Make that a LOT of dirt, especially in the case of the Loop 303 project under construction right now in the West Valley.
