The northbound Loop 101 Price Freeway in the East Valley will be closed or restricted at times this week for improvements, including diamond grinding of concrete pavement and lane striping, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while the following restrictions are in place:
Traffic can detour along northbound Price Freeway frontage road. Expect heavy traffic. Drivers also can consider using northbound Dobson Road or McClintock Drive. An alternate freeway route includes westbound Loop 202 Santan Freeway to westbound I-10, northbound SR 143 and eastbound Loop 202 Red Mountain Freeway to reach Loop 101 beyond the closure.
