Councilman Michael Nowakowski’s Statement on the Upcoming Opening of the New Loop 202 SegmentCouncilman Michael Nowakowski’s Statement on the Upcoming Opening of the New Loop 202 Segment<div class="ExternalClass6378574E3A544E82853377CCF6E535BB"><p>​“Yesterday was a wonderful day for our great state and the City of Phoenix. We celebrated the impending opening of the new Loop 202 segment. After two years of construction, the freeway is expected to open before the new year. The new segment is the largest freeway project ever in Arizona and has saved the state over $100 million dollars. It also embodies the spirit of our great state, with four southwest designs along different parts of the freeway.</p><p>I want to thank our residents and businesses in the Laveen and Estrella neighborhoods, who have been waiting 30 years for this freeway to be built. They have tirelessly advocated for and organized their neighbors to help get the state of Arizona moving on building the freeway.</p><p>The process of building this segment was a true example of the 'Team Phoenix' approach, where the city, county and state partnered with the private sector and was able to finish the freeway three years ahead of schedule.<br></p><p>The new segment of the Loop 202 will be a magnet to economic development, jobs and housing for the City of Phoenix, and I am proud to be a part of this."<br></p></div>12/19/2019 9:00:00 PMStephanie Bracken 602.495.5405
