The Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway will be narrowed to one lane between Priest Drive and 32nd street this weekend for pavement repair, as it is one of a few road projects Valley residents should avoid this weekend.
The lane restriction will begin at 9 p.m. Friday and continue until 5 a.m. Monday. The Arizona Department of Transportation said that both State Route 143 onramps to the westbound Loop 202 will be closed along with the Northbound State Route 143 on-ramp at Washington Street. ADOT is advising drivers to consider alternate routes including the westbound US 60 to westbound I-10 to get to downtown. ADOT added that drivers approaching the work zone could detour onto local streets including McDowell Road, but heavy delays are expected.
In addition to the Loop 202 project, ADOT advises planning ahead to get around these other projects.
