PHOENIX – The northbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale is scheduled to be closed for approximately 60 days, starting Monday.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), the closure is for reconstruction work as part of an ongoing freeway widening project.

Drivers are advised to allow extra travel time and use detour routes, including using northbound Hayden Road or 92nd Street to Cactus Road in order to enter northbound Loop 101.

Loop 101 on- and off-ramps between Shea Boulevard and Princess Drive will be rebuilt to fit with the wider freeway as part of ADOT’s $108 million project scheduled for completion in early 2026.

The widening project will add one lane in each direction along 4.5 miles of the Pima Freeway north of Shea Boulevard.

Other improvements include converting the Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard interchange into a diamond configuration and the installation of new signs, traffic signals and lighting.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, the az511 app or by calling 511.

We want to hear from you.
