ADOT: No construction closures scheduled over Thanksgiving weekend
drivers urged to slow down, focus on safety

PHOENIX — As many travelers take advantage of lower gas prices and head out on trips over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Arizona Department of Transportation is keeping with a holiday tradition by not scheduling any construction-related closures along state highways through early Monday (Nov. 30).

Drivers are urged to use caution, especially as highways become busier this afternoon and early tonight and again on Sunday.

ADOT, the Arizona Department of Public Safety and Governor’s Office of Highway Safety recommend travelers plan ahead and follow these safety tips:

  • Get a good night’s rest before traveling. Drowsy driving is a form of impaired driving.
  • Check your vehicle, including tire pressure, for safety’s sake.
  • Buckle up.
  • Be patient and pay attention. Distractions can be deadly.
  • Obey speed limits. Officers will look for aggressive driving, unsafe tailgating.
  • Never drive impaired. Make advance arrangements for a designated driver. As ADOT’s overhead message boards will remind you through the holiday weekend: Drinking and driving go together like peas and guac.
