Advice on going from Flagstaff to Goodyear?

Hi, I am posting this a little late since we are leaving in the am. I was trying to find the easiest way to get from Flagstaff (Williams, actually), down to Goodyear. I-17 to I-10 seems the obvious route but I was hoping to avoid going all the way into Phoenix. Would the 101 Loop work? I looked up the construction info for Phoenix but I didn't understand if it was open or not. I am pulling a heavy 4 slideout, 38 ft. Montana and am trying to avoid the heaviest traffic and construction. Thank you to anyone who can help!

The 101 would work better than I-17 I-10, but it carries heavy traffic too. Last year we found the 303 had been pushed all the way through to I-17 and was a great ride. It's far enough out that the in-city traffic doesn't use it. Also most of the maps do not show it, so that keeps traffic down too. Google Earth imagery was re-done 4/9/13 and shows the 17/303 cutoff. When we went through last spring the signs on I-17 had not been posted for the turn off, so that might be the only sticky area.

Thank you so much for the advice! It worked fine. Just a little slow the last 8 miles or so due to 25 to 35mph because of the construction and a few traffic lights. It took us within a few miles of our winter rv park. It also showed up on google maps too.

Glad it worked out. Sorry about the last bit, but they weren't working too hard on that end when we went through. Sure is better than trying the 101 though.

Safe travels,
