  • 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!).

  • From Navajo Route 20 to US 89T

    June 10, 2013

    May 29, 2013
    Just as construction to upgrade N20 begins, ADOT is wrapping up its geotechnical investigation at the US 89 landslide site…

  • Portions of Valley freeways will close this afternoon and Saturday morning for funeral processions

    May 24, 2013
    ADOT works to avoid freeway restrictions over holiday weekends, but special circumstances this afternoon and tomorrow morning will necessitate temporary closures on eastbound Loop 101 and southbound I-17.

  • Work on N20 detour to start soon

    May 21, 2013
    Drivers who have been impacted by the closure on US 89 might be happy to know that work is beginning on Navajo Route 20… That means crews soon will start paving the mostly dirt road so it can (in a few months) serve as an interim detour route until repairs are finished on US 89.

  • Work continues on SR 24 in Mesa

    May 17, 2013
    When construction wraps up on SR 24 later this year in southeast Mesa, the new freeway will span one mile between Loop 202 and Ellsworth Road. Known also as the Gateway Freeway, SR 24 certainly will help alleviate traffic congestion in the area. However, that’s not the only reason why this project is valuable to the East Valley...

  • Building a Freeway: Batch plant

    May 8, 2013
    Here we are, blogging about pavement … again! When we told you there’s a lot to learn on the subject, we weren’t joking ...
