PHOENIX — Several ramps on Loop 101 at Seventh and 19th avenues in north Phoenix are scheduled to close for two months, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The eastbound Loop 101 on-ramp at 19th Avenue and off-ramp at Seventh Avenue are scheduled are set to close at 10 p.m. on Dec. 13.

The westbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Seventh Avenue and off-ramp at 19th Avenue closed Friday night.

All ramps are scheduled to reopen in early February 2021.

Between now and February, construction crews will work to widen lanes as part of ADOT’s $185 million Pima Freeway improvement project from I-17 in Phoenix to Pima Road/Princess Drive in Scottsdale.

Westbound drivers can detour around the closures by entering via Seventh Street or 27th Avenue and exiting at Seventh Avenue.

For motorists heading eastbound, ADOT recommends entering 27th or Seventh avenues and detouring on the westbound frontage road when exiting.
