ADOT is looking to answer commuters' questions and concerns about an upcoming construction project on Loop 202 (Santan) in the southeast Valley.

The department is holding a virtual meeting Wednesday night to discuss work on the freeway between Loop 101 (Price) and Gilbert Road that would add two new lanes in each direction. They will also be adding one new lane in each direction between Val Vista Drive and Gilbert Road.

Construction is slated to start in 2024.

Drivers can participate in the meeting from 6-7 p.m. by phone or Zoom.

Construction is funded in part by Proposition 400, a dedicated sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.
