A Loop 101 widening project continues, and more long- and short-term closures are on the way.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the 15th Avenue bridge over Loop 101 will close Monday and remain closed through late 2020. ADOT suggests drivers consider taking Seventh or 19th avenues as alternate routes. 

Additionally, Scottsdale Road will be closed in both directions from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday through Thursday night between Mayo Boulevard and Loop 101.
