A $185 million widening of Loop 101 in north Phoenix and Scottsdale is set to start in February.
The Loop 101 improvement project stretching 13 miles between Interstate 17 and Pima Road in north Scottsdale will add one new general purpose lane in each direction while also reconstructing several on- and off-ramps to match the wider freeway. New merge lanes also will be built in each direction between Seventh Street and Cave Creek Road.
The Loop 101 project is scheduled for completion by early 2021. Crews also will add or reconstruct several noise or retaining walls along Loop 101 where warranted. Before work concludes, crews will add a new layer of smooth rubberized asphalt.
