Just before the eastbound off-ramp to Citrus Road and Cotton Lane, I-10 becomes surfaced in concrete.  Presumably, once construction has been completed on the Loop 303 interchange and traffic has been moved to its final configuration the exposed concrete will be surfaced with rubberized asphalt.  Rubberized asphalt is used extensively on Metro Phoenix's freeways and in my opinion provides one of the smoothest road surfaces in all of North America.

Easterly view approaching the Loop 101 interchange along I-10.  Loop 101 encircles the northern and eastern inner suburbs of Phoenix and was constructed in segments between the late 1990s and early 2000s.  The interchange between I-10 and Loop 101 was completed during the early 2000s.

View looking easterly through the flyover ramps that link Loop 101 and Interstate 10.  The interchange between Loop 101 and I-10 is one of the Phoenix area's simplest freeway to freeway interchanges.  Unlike most of Phoenix's other urban freeway interchanges, no space was reserved for direct ramps between the HOV lanes on the two freeways.

Two views at the 91st Avenue overpass looking west.  Heading west, the wide depressed median that extends westerly from Central Phoenix along the Papago Freeway (I-10) narrows to a concrete wall at 91st Street.  The depressed median along I-10 through Western Phoenix will eventually house a rapid transit line that is proposed.

This view looks easterly through the 51st Avenue overpass.  The taupe coloured sealant that has been applied to the structures along I-10 through Metro Phoenix greatly improves the highway's aesthetics.  I-10 was not completed through western Phoenix until the mid 1980s.
