The South Mountain Freeway is nearly three-quarters complete and is still on target to open this year — though a little later than the Arizona Department of Transportation had originally hoped.

Minutes of the State Transportation Board’s May 17 meeting shows that ADOT Director John Halikowski and district engineer Julie Gadsby reported that 21 of the 22-mile thoroughfare’s 41 bridges are virtually finished and more than 260,000 tons of asphalt has been laid so far.

The eight-lane highway will connect the West 59th Avenue and Chandler interchanges of I-10 and provide a bypass for thousands of cars and trucks around the downtown Phoenix portion of I-10.
