Posted

Motorists traveling the Loop 202 Santan Freeway at night in the Gilbert area should plan for lane restrictions and closures of off-ramps at Gilbert Road and Val Vista Drive for work on the future Lindsay Road interchange.

The Arizona Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down and use caution around construction personnel and equipment while the following restrictions are in place:

  • The eastbound Loop 202 off-ramp at Val Vista Drive will be closed from 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, until 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 3. Detour: Drivers can exit at Santan Village Parkway.
  • The westbound Loop 202 off-ramp at Gilbert Road will be closed from 11:30 p.m. Thursday, March 4, until 5 a.m. Friday, March 5, and 11:30 p.m. Friday, March 5, until 8 a.m. Saturday, March 6. Detour: Drivers can exit at Cooper Road.
  • Eastbound Loop 202 will be restricted to two lanes from Lindsay Road to Val Vista Drive from 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, until 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 3.
  • Westbound Loop 202 will be restricted to two lanes from Lindsay to Gilbert roads from 11:30 p.m. Thursday, March 4, until 5 a.m. Friday, March 5, and 11:30 p.m. Friday, March 5, until 8 a.m. Saturday, March 6.
  • Beginning March 9, Lindsay Road will be restricted to one lane in each direction between Pecos and Germann roads. This restriction will be in place for the duration of this project.

ADOT, in partnership with the town of Gilbert, is constructing a new interchange on the Loop 202 Santan Freeway at Lindsay Road. The interchange will provide direct freeway access to Gilbert’s central business district and surrounding residential and commercial development, according to a release.

The interchange will improve traffic flow in the area by widening Lindsay Road and reducing traffic congestion at the existing interchanges at Gilbert Road and Val Vista Drive. The completed project will also accommodate future general purpose lane widening of the Santan Freeway.

Schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen factors.

For more information, call the ADOT Bilingual Project Information Line at 855-712-8530 or go to azdot.gov/contact and select Projects from the drop-down menu.
