Southbound Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) will be closed between Bell and Thunderbird roads in the West Valley from 10 p.m. Friday to noon Saturday. Additionally, the southbound on-ramps at Union Hills Drive and Bell Road will close starting at 9 p.m. Friday. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends taking a detour on southbound 75th, 83rd or 99th avenues while the freeway is closed down.
