Weekend closure planned for Price Fwy frontage road at Chandler Boulevard
The northbound Loop 101 Price Freeway frontage road at Chandler Boulevard will be closed this weekend to accommodate the relocation of an underground gas line and subsequent pavement repair.
The closure will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10 and the road will re-open by 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13.
No traffic will be allowed northbound from Chandler Boulevard and the closure will cut off northbound access to the Price Loop 101 Freeway on-ramp.
Northbound traffic on the frontage road, as well as east-west traffic on Chandler Boulevard, will be detoured east to Dobson Road, north to Ray Road, then back west to the Loop 101.
The gas line relocation work is part of the $2.1 million Chandler Boulevard/Price Loop 101 Intersection Improvement Project that began in April. The construction includes widening the intersection to provide bicycle lane connectivity, curb work to meet ADA compliance, and adding a second left turn lane for westbound and southbound traffic movements under the Loop 101 Price Freeway at Chandler Boulevard.
The City of Chandler received federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement funds to construct the improvements which are scheduled for completion in late October 2012. For ongoing project information, visit www.ChandlerLoop101.com or call the project hotline at 480-898-4060.
