Night closures on Loop 101 begin Monday evening


According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, Loop 101 will be closed to utilities in both directions between Tatum Boulevard and 64th Street overnight, Monday evening through Friday morning.

ADOT also said the westbound Loop 101 on-ramps at Hayden and Scottsdale Road and the northbound on-ramps from State Route 51 to eastbound Loop 101 will be closed. These closures will occur from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., officials said.

Motorists should take longer travel times into account and should use diversion routes during these times. They suggested using Cave Creek or Scottsdale roads south to Bell Road to avoid the closures.
