PHOENIX — The southbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Princess Drive and Pima Road in Scottsdale is scheduled to be closed for two months.

The Loop 101 on-ramp will close on Tuesday for reconstruction work as part of the freeway widening project in north Scottsdale, according to a press release.

The Loop 101 widening project is funded in part by Proposition 400, a sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.

Drivers who use the ramp at Princess Drive can use the frontage road and enter southbound Loop 101 at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The northbound Loop 101 ramp at Shea Boulevard, which was closed for reconstruction in April, is scheduled to reopen to traffic on Monday.

The ramp will reopen following this weekend’s closure of northbound Loop 101 between Shea Boulevard and Princess Drive due to installing new lights, according to the release.

The northbound Loop 101 off-ramps at Cactus Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard are currently closed for work that will allow to fit the widened freeway, according to the release.

Work crews are adding one lane in each direction along 4.5 miles of the Pima Freeway north of Shea Boulevard.

New improvements include converting the Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard interchange to a diamond configuration and installing new signs, traffic signals and lighting.
