PHOENIX — The transition ramp from the westbound Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway to the Loop 101 Price Freeway was temporarily closed Monday morning following a crash involving a dump truck, authorities said.

The crash caused damaged to the roadway that required repairs before the transition ramp could reopen, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said in an email.

The closure lasted for several hours, DPS said.
