DISCLAIMER:    Alerts regarding Loop 202 come from a variety of sources.  Some easier to interpret than others.  I will post what I know to this page as a convenience to customers.  It is always wise to do you own investigation.  I am not responsible for the accuracy or timeliness of this information :O)

NEWS for DECEMBER !!!

ACCESS to TNC Changing!!  on or about Dec 5

  • Access from Van Buren will CEASE on or about Dec 5 til late Dec when the 202 opens.  During this time the only access with be from the south
  • Access will be AVAILABLE from the Northbound frontage road to Washington Street (street just south of TNC)  which will be opening soon

From the North - Prior to Dec 9 - Please take 51st Ave, 67th Ave or your preferred route south to reach Buckeye Rd (first main street south of Van Buren).  Take Buckeye Rd to the intersection with the 202 (59th Ave alignment) and travel North on the Frontage Rd.  The first street is Washington.  Turn right on Washington and then left on 57th Dr.  Watch closely - if you miss it you will have to go around the block back to Buckeye!

From the North - After Dec 9 - The 59th Ave southbound Frontage Rd will be open at this time.  Please exit I-10 at 51st or 67th Ave and take the I-10 Access Rd to 59th Ave.  Go south PAST Van Buren to Buckeye - Make a right and another immediate right onto the North Bound Frontage Rd. The first street is Washington.  Turn right and then left on 57th Dr.  Watch closely - if you miss it you will have to go around the block back to Buckeye!  (I have been told to allow an extra 5-10 min for this route to TNC)

From the South - Navigate to the Buckeye Rd intersection with the 202 and take the North Bound Frontage Rd. The first street is Washington.  Turn right and then left on 57th Dr.  Watch closely - if you miss it you will have to go around the block back to Buckeye!

  • How do I get on the I-10 to go home? - Go south to Washington, make a right and then another right onto the Frontage Rd.  This will take you to Van Buren.  Go straight on the Frontage road crossing over Van Buren.  This will take you to Roosevelt.  Turn left on Roosevelt and right on 59th Ave.  Watch the signs to pick up the Access Rd to 51st Ave / 67th Ave where you can take the Ramp to the I-10.

The GOOD NEWS is the 202 will be opened shortly before Christmas!!  However... we are not finished with closures yet !!!   Surface street closures will continue - especially on Van Buren.  The new route option to TNC will be to take the I-10 to the 202 and exit to Buckeye Rd.  Make right on Buckeye and another right on the frontage road proceeding north to Washington.  Those from Tucson and south east valley may take the I-10 to the 202 Pecos segment and exit at Buckeye!

Map coming soon!
