What has more than 9,000 photos, 6 million views and the best shots of highway projects in the state?
The answer is the ADOT Flickr page
, which our photographers have been populating with shots of everything from public hearings to bridge demolitions for more than six years.
Just in the past year, we've added nearly 400 photos of our work to widen Interstate 10 and improve the State Route 87 interchange
, more than 300 on the construction of the South Mountain Freeway
, 73 on widening I-10 in Casa Grande and building new bridges over Jimmie Kerr Boulevard
, not to mention shots from the work on Ina Road at I-10 in Tucson
or the new overpass on SR 347 in Maricopa going over the rail road tracks
Collectively we have 9,321 photos on our Flickr page with 6.052 million total views to date. In case you are wondering, our most viewed album on Flickr was from the landslide that shut down a portion of US 89 south of Page in 2013
. One photo from that album has 7,111 views alone.
