Loop 101 Pima Freeway Expansion Project

Project Overview

The Arizona Department of Transportation has initiated a project to widen and improve the Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) from Interstate 17 in Phoenix east to Pima Road in Scottsdale. Improvements are needed to address growing traffic demands in the northeast Valley and relieve traffic congestion on the Loop 101 during the morning and evening peak travel periods.

Major elements of this project include:

  • Adding one general purpose lane in each direction between I-17 and Pima Road
  • Adding an auxiliary lane in each direction between Seventh Street and Cave Creek Road
  • Constructing a new overpass structure at the future Miller Road alignment
  • Modifying freeway ramps and frontage road connections at 10 interchanges

Additional components include construction of noise or retaining walls where warranted, improvements to drainage and new rubberized asphalt resurfacing and pavement markings.
