Pima Freeway General Purpose Lane project overview:
In 2014, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will be providing additional travel lanes for all motorists on the Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) from the Loop 202/Loop 101 interchange to Shea Boulevard - a total of 11 miles (Information Flyer).
At the completion of this project, motorists can look forward to:
An additional travel lane southbound from Shea Boulevard to McKellips Road
An additional travel lane northbound from McDowell Road to Shea Boulevard
Two additional travel lanes from the northbound Loop 101/Loop 202 interchange entrance ramp to McDowell Road
An auxiliary lane, allowing motorists the ability to merge or continue to the next exit, between Indian Bend Road and McDonald Drive both north and southbound
A quieter and smoother driving experience due to the use of rubberized asphalt on the widened roadway surface
represents the required steps in the development of a roadway
or roadway improvement. In addition to establishing a funding
source, there is a series of required planning and environmental
studies before a roadway is constructed.
(Pima Freeway) projects are funded with the half-cent sales
tax under the voter-approved Proposition
400. (file size: 3.6MB)
