Interesting to see the dates though, many say 2014/2015 for completion, and 2016 for the Northern/101 interchange, and the project is seemingly stalled out.

Probably running shorting on funding I would assume?

No idea, but I wish they'd say something. There's nothing built out there despite a "2015" completion date and its already April of 2016.

Problem is that the bulk of the funding is coming from MCDOT and all those local cities.  What they might have available could be fairly wonky in comparison to a statewide agency like ADOT.  I'm actually kind of surprised that this wasn't pursued as Arizona State Highway or at least get ADOT partially interested but it was kind of the same thing with AZ 303 before it was a freeway.

It does seem like it would be a very natural part to be part of the valley freeway system and get an AZ route number. The 303 was built as the two-lane road by Maricopa County to hold the space, then the upgrade to freeway was done by ADOT. Maybe MCDOT would do the bulk of the initial construction, then ADOT come in later and take over maintenance and incorporate it into the system saving the municipalities the upkeep costs of a full freeway?

The project is currently on hold, according to the city of El Mirage:
