The Arizona Department of Transportation has made it easy to get email and text alerts that will help you save time. Just visit and click the orange button that reads “Sign up for traffic alerts now!” Each week, you’ll receive a list of lane restrictions and closures in the works so you can plan accordingly.

You’ll be in good company: More than 10,000 people have already signed up for traffic alerts that will help them save time.

The South Mountain Freeway, which will run north and south between 55th and 63rd avenues and then east and west along Pecos Road, connecting with Interstate 10 at each end, is expected to open by late 2019.
