Loop 303 expansion in West Valley ready to go

Posted: Updated:

SURPRISE, Ariz. – The Arizona Department of Transportation is getting to work on an expansion of Loop 303 in the West Valley.

Crews are ready to start work on a six-mile stretch of Loop 303 between Peoria Avenue and Mountain View Boulevard. They’ll be expanding the two-lane highway to a six-lane (three in each direction) freeway.

Come this fall, crews will also work on a new multi-level freeway-to-freeway interchange at Interstate 10 near Cotton Lane in Goodyear.

Loop 303 segments between I-10 and Peoria Avenue will start next year.

All of the construction should be complete some time in 2014.
