Peoria Avenue to Mountain View Road TRAC # H787501
RTP Phase 2 Project Description The project is part of several to build Loop 303 Estrella Freeway into a full freeway between Interstate 10 Maricopa Freeway and US 60 Grand Avenue. This section includes three general purpose lanes of freeway in each direction, rubberized asphalt and enhanced freeway aesthetics. Several sound walls were also built to aid in mitigating noise in neighboring communities. The Arizona Department of Transportation has a planned landscaping project on the Loop 303 Estrella Freeway between Peoria Avenue and Waddell Road as well as Waddell Road and Mountain View Boulevard to include irrigation, new plants and ground cover.
Project Benefits This project improves traffic flow in the west valley by creating a regional connector freeway with additional lanes of freeway and over- or underpasses for surface streets. After the completion of the northern portion of Loop 303, landscaping was the final phase of the freeway improvements made in this area. The landscaping was chosen to provide a cohesive aesthetic throughout the corridor.
