Southbound SR 143 to connect to Sky Harbor Boulevard
There’s a new entrance to Sky Harbor airport that’s ready to open Monday morning. The Arizona Department of Transportation will open a new ramp connecting Southbound State Route 143 with Sky Harbor Boulevard. Crews will also reopen the northbound ramp which has been closed for improvements since March.
It’s an $18 million dollar project that was approved by voters in 2004.
