State transportation officials say a new freeway north of Interstate 10 on the west side of the Phoenix metro area should be completed in 2014.
Loop 303 is being expanded from a two-lane rural highway to a six-lane urban freeway.
Major sections of the freeway were opened in 2013, and completion of a new $145 million interchange will directly link Loop 303 with I-10 in Goodyear.
Crews began working on the interchange project in late 2011, and completion is scheduled by next fall.
