ADOT said drivers who typically exit eastbound Loop 101 at Hayden should use either Scottsdale Road or Pima Road/Princess Drive.
For those who use the Scottsdale on-ramp, drivers should consider 64th Street or Hayden Road.
The Loop 101 Pima Freeway Improvement Project will add new travel lanes along 13 miles between the Interstate 17 and Pima Road/Princess Drive in Scottsdale. The project began in February 2019 and is expected to be completed in early 2021.
