SR 143

A look at one section of the ever-growing Valley freeway system nearly 30 years ago.
We’ve followed the progress of the SR 143/Sky Harbor Boulevard traffic interchange project pretty closely here on the blog and we’re excited to let you know that the work is now complete!
Drivers headed to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport are sure to notice a couple of big improvements beginning Monday morning… That’s when two new freeway ramps linking SR 143 with Sky Harbor Boulevard are set to open, providing drivers with better roadway connections at the east end of the airport.
The improvements to SR 143 are really coming along. In fact, construction now is about 64 percent complete!
Few situations are as stressful as hitting traffic on your way to the airport … especially if you’re holding on to that non-refundable ticket for a trip out of town. That’s why ADOT is working on reconstructing the State Route 143/Sky Harbor Boulevard Traffic Interchange to improve access to and from the airport.
