Arizona Department of Transportation issued the following announcement on Dec. 24.
As the holiday travel season continues, no freeway closures for construction or maintenance projects are scheduled in the Phoenix area this weekend (Dec. 27-30), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers should focus on safe driving habits, including buckling up and keeping speeds in check. Never drive while impaired. Arrange for a designated driver or ride service. Please stay alert while obeying lower speed limits within existing freeway improvement project work zones.
Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT. When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, our free app available at ADOTAlerts.com will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas – where possible, in advance of alternate routes.
Another great way to find more about ADOT’s projects and programs to improve Arizona’s transportation system is the ADOT Blog at azdot.gov/blog.
ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes and other improvements as part of the Regional Transportation Plan for the Maricopa County region. The primary funding source for regional freeway improvements is a half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2004. More information about ADOT projects and the regional plan is available at azdot.gov/projects.
