Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway Roadway Widening Project

Project Summary and benefits

As a component of the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) soon will begin a roadway widening project on the Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway). This widening project will construct additional eastbound lanes on Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) between SR 51 (Piestewa Freeway) and Loop 101 (Price Freeway), and additional westbound lanes between Loop 101 and Scottsdale/Rural Road within the cities of Phoenix and Tempe. As a result of adding these new general-purpose lanes, motorists in this corridor will benefit from improved mobility and added roadway capacity. This widening project will utilize a construction method known as "design-build," which focuses on combining both the design phase and construction phase into a single effort to streamline the completion schedule.

Improvements will include:

  • One general-purpose lane from the I-10/SR 51 Traffic Interchange (TI) to Scottsdale Road.
  • Two general-purpose lanes from Scottsdale Road to Loop 101/Loop 202 TI (to develop six general-purpose lanes approaching the system interchange)

  • Two general-purpose lanes from the Loop 101/Loop 202 TI to McClintock Drive (to develop three general-purpose and one HOV lane through the system interchange)
  • One general-purpose lane from McClintock Drive to Scottsdale Road
The Process and what to expect

The process of constructing additional general-purpose lanes on the Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) will require traffic restrictions on freeway lanes, on-and off-ramps, as well as additional restrictions to surface streets that may impact motorists using the freeway as their preferred route of travel. Daytime and nighttime construction activities are expected throughout the project. The project team will provide regular project updates via email and on the project Web site

Project Schedule

Mid to Late February 2009 - Anticipated Start of Construction
Fall 2010 - Anticipated Completion of Construction

ADOT is committed to providing construction information to stakeholders and welcomes your comments and feedback. For further information, or to request weekly project updates, please call the 24-hour project hotline at (602) 787-3927 or send an email to:
