Drivers in metro Phoenix will be able to shuttle between the East and West Valley on the new Loop 202 sometime in the near future, officials said Wednesday.
But at a large gathering to celebrate the completion of the long-awaited $1.7 billion roadway project, those officials would not give a date or time when cars will be allowed on it.
“Very soon you’ll be able to use the Loop 202 Pastor Freeway,” Arizona Department of Transportation Director John Halikowski said. “The freeway will be open to traffic before the end of the year.”
