Expansion Project for Loop 101 Begins Late August
Aiming towards the end of 2016, Loop 101 in Scottsdale – the busiest freeway in the city – is getting another lane added to both sides. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) said the project will launch later this month, and involves an 11-mile stretch between Loop 202 and Shea Boulevard.
Although the project will involve a lot of closed roadways and affect businesses during construction, it is going to be worth the inconvenience in the end. According to AZCentral.com, Pima Road, which moved traffic in that part of the city before Loop 101 opened, will resume its role as the primary road running north and south in Scottsdale.
“Projects like this add room not just for three years from now but also for decades to come,” ADOT spokesman Doug Nintzel said in the article.
