PHOENIX — A portion of Loop 101 in north Phoenix is the only scheduled closure on Valley highways this weekend, the Arizona Department of Transportation said Thursday.

The eastbound Loop 101 Pima Freeway will be closed between Seventh Street and SR 51 from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday as pavement diamond grinding for a widening project continues.

The north and southbound Interstate 17 ramps to eastbound Loop 101, along with the eastbound Loop 101 ramps at 27th, 19th and Seventh avenues will also be closed.

In the West Valley, the southbound Loop 101 Agua Fria Freeway will be narrowed to two lanes overnight in areas between Olive Avenue and Interstate 10 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday nights for pavement maintenance.

Drivers should be on the lookout for Loop 101 on- or off-ramp closures at times, and be prepared to use another nearby exit if a ramp is closed near the state-run COVID-19 vaccination site at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

ADOT says work is being arranged to limit impacts on travel to the vaccination site.

The westbound State Route 24 Gateway Freeway on-ramp at Ellsworth Road leading to the Loop 202 Santan Freeway in east Mesa will also be closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for a dirt hauling operation.
