A section of eastbound Loop 101 in north Phoenix will be closed this weekend for paving and lane-striping improvements. The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends drivers plan ahead and consider alternate routes while the following freeway restrictions are in place this weekend:

Eastbound Loop 101 will be closed between Interstate 17 and Seventh Street from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for rubberized asphalt paving and lane-striping improvements. Drivers should consider alternate routes. Eastbound Loop 101 traffic will exit at 27th Avenue and use Beardsley frontage road before re-entering freeway at Seventh Street. Eastbound Loop 101 ramps to Interstate 17 will remain open.

Both Interstate 17 ramps to eastbound Loop 101 closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for paving work. Drivers going northbound on I-17 can exit to eastbound Union Hills Drive and use northbound Seventh Street to reach eastbound Loop 101. Southbound I-17 traffic can exit to eastbound Deer Valley Road and use southbound Seventh Street to reach eastbound Loop 101.

Loop 303 closed in both directions between Bethany Home and Indian School roads from 9 p.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Saturday for utility work. Traffic can use Indian School or Bethany Home roads to Cotton Lane to travel beyond the freeway closure.
