Drivers in Scottsdale should plan for two long-term ramp closures on the Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) in conjunction with the ongoing improvement project. The ramp closures are needed to widen bridges and reconstruct ramps between Hayden and Pima/Princess roads to accommodate the additional lanes being constructed on the freeway.
