PHOENIX — According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the northbound lanes of Loop 101, otherwise known as Pima Freeway, will be closed from Oct. 21-24.
The closure will take place in the Scottsdale area between Chaparral Road and Shea Boulevard. Construction is almost complete on the freeway, so the shutdown should give workers an ample amount of time to finish the freeway. ADOT insists drivers should look for alternate routes and expect extra time through these areas.
Other freeways will also have restrictions this weekend that drivers should be aware of, and ADOT urges people to be patient with these closures.
• Northbound Loop 101 will be closed between Chaparral Road and Shea Boulevard from 10 p.m Friday, Oct. 21 to 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 24. Construction workers plan to paint the final lane striping and make improvements to the bridge-joint.
