I know what you're thinking, "What's with the background?" Well, they did it.

Future: South Mountain Freeway

The South Mountain Freeway is considered as the southern bypass of Downtown Phoenix which would so by cutting through South Mountain Park and abutting the southern edge of Ahwatukee neighborhood of Phoenix. It would begin at the complete traffic interchange with the San Tan Freeway and Interstate 10 continuation onto Pecos Road through Ahwatukee, also through the Gila Bend River Indian Reservation, just south of Queen Creek Road. Heading northwest, the South Mountain Freeway follows the 55th Avenue alignment to return to its junction with Interstate 10 in Phoenix.

ADOT released the idea in the Arizona Republic in 1995 on March 9, 2009, that the fate of the South Mountain Freeway is at stake by until at least 2011 in need of Maricopa county's need of $5.3 million to create the freeway.

Until then (which it has been "then") the final segment of Loop 202 is a Design Concept Reception for Chandler, Tempe, Phoenix, Chandler, Ahwatukee, and South Mountain for the final completion of construction in 2015. Community Opinion does exist, mainly for the residence of Ahwatukee. While the Maricopa Government of Association cannot produce enough money, Ahwatukee is adding a limited access parkway for the business employees of South Mountain Nature Care Services.

Here is the plan of the freeway route:
