The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is alerting drivers of two Phoenix-area freeway closures for freeway improvement projects this weekend, including a stretch of northbound Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) in Scottsdale and sections of State Route 143 (Hohokam Expressway).

Traffic exiting northbound Loop 101 to westbound Shea Boulevard can use northbound Scottsdale Road to Loop 101 beyond the closure. Note: The northbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Shea Boulevard, which has been closed for reconstruction, is scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday (June 17).
