Area motorists discuss the opening of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway.
Hubby and I took the 202 to Ikea yesterday. Fabulous road! — Jeanie Graham Campbell
It looks like you may be able to get into 202 from Roosevelt and west 51st Ave.? — Andy Snyder
59th runs parallel to the new freeway. I just took it this morning ... wow! What a difference with the morning commute. There is no Roosevelt or Van Buren exit going south … will take it later today to go back home. — Ernesto Santana Jr
School’s out and people are off work this week and next. Wait till the 6th when it’s back to normal and see how it is then. — Gary Gillett
How long did it take from surprise to Tempe? — Claudia Caro
It took about 40 minutes, which isn’t that much quicker on a low traffic day on I-10, but I’m thinking it will be a great improvement when the 10 is clogged through Phoenix. — Jeanie Graham Campbell
