We just got some really exciting news about the US 93 project (you remember, it’s the one that improved about 15 miles of roadway south of the Hoover Dam – we wrote about it here and here…
Hitting the road this Independence Day? You’ll be happy to hear that no state highway construction closures are planned on the Fourth!
Haboob Haikus
The wait is over ... today's the day we announce the top Haboob Haikus as voted for by the public. Before you watch the video above to see if your favorite was selected, we just want to give a big thanks to everyone who participated in the 2012 Haboob Haiku challenge!
Large aerial photo film rolls in the archive
This item probably looks pretty familiar to any of you photography buffs out there. It’s a roll of film – a really big roll of film. But, what does this have to do with transportation, you might ask?
When it comes to designing a road, just knowing where it’s going to be built isn’t enough – engineers have to really understand the area’s features and terrain before they can even begin to plan. This is where ADOT’s Engineering Survey section comes in…
You probably don’t think much about drainage when you’re driving, but a well-designed drainage system can increase the lifespan of a highway and help keep the public safe.

Transportation funding is an extensive topic and even though we’ve covered it in the past, there’s still more to blog about. So, today we’re focusing on a particular funding source available for really big transportation projects – ones that, when completed, will have a significant national or regional impact.

Placing Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) is one of the final steps involved when building a road, but it’s far from an afterthought…
Would you say that you’re a planner, or do you adhere to more of a “let’s see what happens” approach to life? Nothing wrong with either attitude, but here at ADOT we’re definitely planners (no surprise – we’ve blogged plenty about it!).
We're headed into monsoon season (the official start is today) and those dusty, unpredictable storms are on their way...
We've been pretty entrenched in social media this week so we thought we'd take this opportunity to answer a question we get asked from time to time... Why, as a state agency, does ADOT commit resources to social media?
