Drivers are encouraged to allow extra travel time or consider alternate routes while these scheduled restrictions are in place:

  • Westbound Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) closed between McDowell Road and Country Club Drive in Mesa from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (Oct. 27) to allow crews to shift lanes and place temporary barrier wall for a freeway-widening work zone. DETOUR: Please consider alternate routes, including westbound US 60 (Superstition Freeway). Traffic exiting Loop 202 at the closure can detour to westbound McKellips Road.
