  • Building a Freeway: Rubberized Asphalt

    July 26, 2013
    Rubberized asphalt is durable, smooth and uses recycled materials that otherwise would be headed to a landfill ... what’s not to like?

  • Taking a look at the long-term fix proposed for US89

    July 18, 2013
    Last week, we all got a look at the long-term fix being proposed to repair the landslide-damaged stretch of US 89 – it’ll involve cutting back the mountain slope and constructing a gravity buttress wall. The repairs, at an estimated cost of $40 million, could take more than two years to complete.

  • Community outreach and US 89

    July 16, 2013
    Last week, when we shared with you the long-term repair solution that has been proposed for US 89, we explained how experts studied the area for months and put together a comprehensive report that includes a major amount of geological data (seriously, the report is 463 pages).

  • Produce spill in the Deck Park Tunnel

    July 12, 2013
    If you are a Phoenix-area commuter who travels daily through the Deck Park Tunnel, you’re probably already aware that a produce truck spilled its contents yesterday afternoon as it headed westbound on I-10.

  • Loop 303 on its way to providing fast, convenient travel option in West Valley

    June 27, 2013
    We like to check in, from time to time, on the Loop 303 project… Over the past two years we’ve been able to see a 14-mile stretch of the freeway open to traffic, witness the start of construction on new segments and mark many, many milestones along the way.

  • ADOT, Game and Fish host major environmental conference

    June 25, 2013
    Transportation planners and engineers have a lot to consider when designing or improving a roadway in Arizona. It’s not just about getting people from one place to the next – safety, planning priorities, community concerns, fiscal constraints all get taken into account (along with so many other factors).

  • Navajo Route 20 is closed for construction

    June 17, 2013
    Yes, paving on N20 has begun, but drivers shouldn’t plan on using the route as a detour until construction is completed later this summer.

  • Pull Aside • Stay Alive: Will you know what to do?

    June 13, 2013
    We’re loving all the Haboob Haikus that have been rolling in this week… Like last year, this poetry challenge with the funny name has helped us accomplish an important goal, which is to get people talking about the danger of driving in dust storms. Because we cannot forget that dust storms can pose very real risks to motorists in this state – just take a look at the video above for proof.

  • Haboob Haiku: Year Two

    June 11, 2013
    Last year, ADOT launched its very first “Haboob Haiku” challenge in an effort to spread the word about dust storm safety and the response was pretty amazing. That’s actually a huge understatement ... Not only did we receive over 600 original haikus (some even by phone and snail mail), but #HaboobHaiku yielded stories in media outlets all over the world (they even wrote about it in New Zealand!).
