SPRING TRAINING 2004 ROADTRIP
Arizona Loop 101

Loop 101 comprises about 2/3 of a Phoenix beltway. It serves mostly the northern and eastern sections of the Phoenix metropolitan area. On Day Six of the Spring Training 2004 Roadtrip, I drove Loop 101.

Loop 101
Pictures taken March 17, 2004

Loop 101 North approaching Exit 3 -
Thomas Rd. - 1/2 mile. Thomas Rd. is
the first interchange north of Interstate
10 for northbound travelers.
Loop 101 North assurance shield
just north of Interstate 10. This
section is known as the Agua Fria
Freeway.

Rd.
Loop 101 South approaching Exit
3 - 3/4 mile, and Exits 1A-B - Interstate
10 - 2 miles. There is a sign goof
here - the exit tab for Interstate 10
says "Exit 1-AB" instead of "Exit
1A-B."

Loop 101 North at Exit 11 - U.S. 60 -
Grand Ave. Traffic began to back up
here due to the closure of the
northbound lanes a mile ahead due
to an accident. This was a fun 45-
minute traffic jam.
Loop 101 North at Exit 12 -
Thunderbird Rd. Due to the accident,
I had to detour along city streets for
a few miles. Thankfully, the Phoenix-
area streets are set up in a grid, just
like Oklahoma City, so it wasn't too
difficult.
