Virtual Meeting for Future Santan Freeway Project Set on June 8

Project provides Loop 202 upgrades from Loop 101 to Val Vista Drive

A virtual public meeting has been scheduled on Wednesday, June 8, to provide information about a future project to widen Loop 202 (Santan Freeway) in the southeast Valley.

The Arizona Department of Transportation and partnering agencies will host the virtual meeting about the planned Loop 202 project in the Chandler and Gilbert areas. 

The project is currently scheduled to start construction in 2024 as part of the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan. It will add two new lanes in each direction along Loop 202 between Loop 101 (Price Freeway) and Gilbert Road as well as one new lane in each direction between Val Vista Drive and Gilbert Road.

The meeting will include a presentation by project staff and an opportunity for participants to ask questions and provide comments either online or by phone. Those who are interested can attend the virtual meeting as follows:
