SPRING TRAINING 2004 ROADTRIP
Arizona Loop 202

Loop 202 is one of Phoenix's loop freeways. Currently, Loop 202 is in two different sections. The first section is from Interstate 10 & Arizona 51 to Higley Rd. The second (and newer) section is from Interstate 10 to Loop 101. Eventually, Loop 202 will provide a bypass south of downtown Phoenix. On Day Six of the Spring Training 2004 Roadtrip, I drove all of Loop 202 as it was in March 2004.
