  • ADOT works with cities on signal coordination

    February 2, 2012
    Nothing seems to slow a commute down like having to stop at one red light after another. That’s why ADOT is working to synchronize some of its signals – a move that can help traffic flow a little more smoothly while reducing the type of stop-and-go traffic that can lead to congestion.

    January 25, 2012
    Remember this awesome time-lapse video showing the construction of a temporary bypass at Greenway Road and the Loop 303? Well, today we’ve got an even more in-depth look at how crews built the new intersection – complete with temporary barriers, fences and traffic signals – in just about 43 hours! (Take a look at the photos below for an amazing before and after aerial glimpse of the new bypass!)

  • Partnering 101

    January 20, 2012
    When ADOT builds a freeway, there is an essential step that surprisingly requires absolutely no construction or even heavy lifting. We’re talking about partnering – the ADOT and construction industry process that allows everyone on the project to get together, set goals and talk about the work ahead.
