Work to repair and preserve 21 miles of the Loop 202 in Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa is scheduled to occur over the next two weekends. The freeway will be closed in both directions while the Arizona Department of Transportation makes urgently needed pavement repairs. On- and off-ramps in the work zone also will be closed.
Work is occurring in two sections of the Loop 202: between the US 60 (Superstition Freeway) and Williams Field Road and then between Williams Field Road and the Loop 101 (Price Freeway). The two sections will not be closed at the same time.
ADOT urges drivers to plan ahead for delays. Alternate routes include the US 60 and local streets. Drivers should allow plenty of extra travel time while the following closures are in place:
The Loop 202 will be closed in both directions between the US 60 and Williams Field Road from 10 p.m. Friday, May 3, to 3 a.m. Monday, May 6. Also:
- State Route 24 will be closed at Ellsworth Road. Drivers can access Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport from Ray Road.
- The interchange ramps from east and westbound US 60 to westbound Loop 202 will be closed.
- The Loop 202 on- and off-ramps at Baseline, Guadalupe, Elliot, Hawes, Power, Higley and Williams Field roads will be closed.
The Loop 202 will be closed in both directions between Williams Field Road and the Loop 101 from 10 p.m. Friday, May 10, to 3 a.m. Monday, May 13. Also:
- The interchange ramp from southbound Loop 101 to eastbound Loop 202 will be closed.
- The ramp from Williams Field Road to westbound Loop 202 will be closed, as well as the Loop 202 on- and off-ramps at Santan Village Parkway, Val Vista Drive, Gilbert, Cooper and McQueen roads, Arizona Avenue and Alma School, Dobson and Price roads.
