Individual ramp restrictions continue along the 101 corridor for ramp, crosswalk, and sidewalk improvements needed for compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. This work happens along the bottom of the ramps, at the cross-street traffic interchanges. Work is being performed currently at McDowell Road, McDonald Drive and Via De Ventura.
Temporary construction barrier has been removed from the majority of the project limits. Posted freeway speeds are 65 MPH for the southbound mainline and 55 MPH for the northbound mainline north of Chaparral Road.
Ramp and Cross Street Restrictions:
Ramps and turn lanes at McDowell Road (on ramps and off ramps) will have limited lane restrictions as crews perform ADA crosswalk improvements at the intersections. This work is scheduled through October 21st. The southbound on-ramp will be restricted to one lane at the bottom of the ramp Thursday October 13th until Monday October 17th.
Ramps and turn lanes at Via de Ventura (on ramps and off ramps) will have limited lane restrictions as crews perform ADA crosswalk improvements at the intersections. This work is scheduled through October 21st. Intermittent restrictions will take place until October 28th.
Please pay attention to posted maximum speed limit signs on the mainline freeway through the construction zone. Speed limit on ramps and cross streets is 40 MPH. Beware of heavy equipment along the roadside parkway, barricade trucks, and haul trucks entering and leaving the roadside areas as earthwork, and landscaping operations continue. The 101 is still an active work zone, even when the paving is done. Maintain appropriate speed for your own safety and that of construction workers and fellow motorists. Maintain appropriate distance from the vehicle(s) ahead and anticipate potentially sudden changes in traffic speed.
All motorists are encouraged to be courteous and prepared at all times while traveling through the project zone.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but it’s possible that unscheduled closures or restrictions might occur because of weather or other factors.
