  • Loop 303/Greenway intersection closure slated for this weekend

    December 8, 2011
    Crews are going to move a lot of dirt as they widen Loop 303 in the West Valley. But, at one intersection, there’s a crucial bit of work that needs to get done before they can start digging! This weekend the Loop 303/Greenway Road intersection in Surprise will be closed beginning 10 p.m. Friday so crews can quickly re-align the intersection, install a temporary traffic signal and temporary sidewalk.
