  • Adopt a Highway to help maintain Arizona's beauty

    May 20, 2011
    It’s a sad truth, but trash thrown onto our state’s roadways really adds up. That’s because it’s not just a few random soda cans, cigarettes or empty bags littering the roads and surrounding areas. In reality, more than 800 tons of trash gets picked up in Arizona each year.

  • Take a look: New signs easier to read

    May 19, 2011
    Drivers along eastbound Loop 202 might notice something’s different on their Monday morning commute – but it’s going to take a very perceptive eye to catch the change. This weekend ADOT is installing signs with a brand new typeface on the Red Mountain Freeway between Loop 101 and Country Club Drive. Although the change is slight, the new signs should be a little easier to read!

  • Environmental impacts carefully studied by ADOT

    May 10, 2011
    If you’ve ever worked on any sort of team you know it takes a lot of trust, communication and cooperation from everyone to achieve what the group is working toward. You’re probably also aware of what happens when that cooperation isn't there ... it can be a bad experience for everyone!
