Loop 101 ramp in Scottsdale closed for 2 months

Posted

The northbound Loop 101 off-ramp at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard is scheduled to be closed starting today, May 29, for about 60 days.

The closure is necessary for reconstruction work to take place as part of the freeway widening project in north Scottsdale, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers who normally would use the ramp can exit at Raintree Drive and use the freeway frontage road to reach Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, ADOT officials said.

The $108 million Loop 101 Improvement Project between Shea Boulevard and Princess Drive/Pima Road started in January.

Two other northbound ramps, the on-ramp at Shea Boulevard and off-ramp at Cactus Road, were closed for approximately 60 days starting in April. 

Over the course of the two-year Loop 101 project, on- and off-ramps between Shea Boulevard and Princess Drive will be rebuilt to fit with the wider freeway, an ADOT release stated. The entire project is scheduled for completion in early 2026.

The project is adding one lane in each direction along 4.5 miles of the Pima Freeway north of Shea Boulevard. Other improvements include converting the Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard interchange to a diamond configuration and installing new signs, traffic signals and lighting.
