|The ADOT Blog turns one today ... that's a lot of blog posts, |
photos and videos!
One year ago today we launched this blog and now, 12 months later, we’re trying to figure out how to mark the anniversary…
At first we thought maybe a post on why we started this blog in the first place was in order, but then we figured we’d just direct you to our very first entry
to cover that.
Next, we contemplated writing a comprehensive essay on the history of transportation in Arizona and the importance of a freeway system that is able to move people and things to where they need to go … it was going to be brilliant. But, then we remembered someone’s already done that and we blogged about it in February
So, what to do? How about we just keep it simple by saying, thank you for reading and watching our videos! We hope you’ll continue to come back and check out what we’re working on here on the ADOT Blog because we’ve got a lot in store for the months ahead.
Before we go, we want to take a look back at the past year and re-share some of our favorite posts (it was tough to choose)…
Who could forget our introduction to the ALERT team last April
? This is the ADOT crew that responds to incidents and crashes on our freeways. They assist on scene, close down the road and set up detours.
Back in October we showed a video about caissons
– the massive steel-and-concrete pillars that make up a bridge’s substructure. It gives an awesome view from the top of these massive structures and the post is one of our most popular with nearly 3,500 page views!
This was an interesting video and blog post … all about sand jacks and false work
, the temporary structures used to build bridges, tunnels and box culverts.
Wow … what a year it has been!
