Plan on Superstition Freeway restrictions Feb. 2-6, ADOT says


Improvement projects will require closures and other restrictions along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend and early next week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while restrictions are planned this weekend, according to a release.

In the east Valley, they include:

  • Eastbound U.S. Highway 60 Superstition Freeway narrowed to two lanes --- right lanes closed --- overnight in areas between Loop 101 Price Freeway and Crismon Road from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights (Feb. 2-6) for pavement improvement work (crack sealing). Allow extra travel time and be prepared for freeway ramp closures within work areas. Note: Both Loop 101 ramps to eastbound U.S. 60 will be closed Sunday night/early Monday.
  • Southbound Loop 101 Price Freeway narrowed to two lanes between Baseline and Elliot roads from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 1-2) for widening project. Allow extra travel time and use caution in work zones. Note: Southbound Loop 101 also narrowed to two lanes overnight between Guadalupe and Elliot roads from 10 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday; from 8 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday; and from 8 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday (Feb. 3). Northbound Loop 101 on-ramps at Ray and Elliot roads and northbound off-ramps at Warner and Guadalupe roads closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (Feb. 3).

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT.

When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, a free app available at will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas --- where possible, in advance of alternate routes, the release states.

Additional freeway restrictions such as ramp or frontage road closures will be posted at, under ADOT News. Visit the site to also subscribe to ADOT email and text updates, including future weekend restriction information.

ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes and other improvements as part of the Regional Transportation Plan for the Maricopa County region.

The primary funding source for regional freeway improvements is a half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2004. More information about ADOT projects and the regional plan is at
