Happy holidays from the ADOT Blog

Blog-2014-1223-snow A scene off of State Route 67, near Jacob Lake. As 2014 winds down, we want to say that we’ve really enjoyed sharing ADOT’s story with you this year! We can’t wait to bring even more videos and blog posts your way in 2015...

Before that new year rolls around, the ADOT Blog will be taking a brief hiatus. We’ll be back in January, but until then, here are a few items we want to make sure you know about:
  • Good news! To help with holiday travel, drivers will not encounter any state highway closures for construction work Dec. 22 - Jan. 2. While work on highway projects will continue over the next two weeks, no full closures will be scheduled! Motorists are still urged to plan ahead, allow extra travel time, avoid distractions and be patient if traveling during the holidays. Please obey speed limits, buckle up and never drive while impaired. Don’t forget to #KnowSnow.
  • Only the blog is taking a vacation. All ADOT and MVD offices will be open EXCEPT for Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, when they’ll close in recognition of the holidays (you can always visit ServiceArizona to complete a number of MVD transactions online).
  • Finally, we want to point you to a few different spots where you can find ADOT information all year. Check for ADOT news and info on Twitter and Facebook. We also encourage you to visit ADOT’s Travel Information site at or call 511 for the latest highway conditions around the state.
Stay safe and have a happy holiday season!
