Drivers should use caution with work still possible near freeways

PHOENIX – No closures for ongoing improvement projects are scheduled along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend (Dec. 1-4), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

To limit impacts on traffic, shopping and the delivery of products during the holiday travel season, ADOT and its contractors schedule work to avoid full freeway closures through New Year’s weekend.

With work still planned near freeways, including during overnight hours, drivers should remain alert, use caution and be prepared to slow down when approaching and traveling through any existing work zones. 

Work zones remain in place for the I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project in the Phoenix area and the I-17 widening project between Anthem and Sunset Point.

ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes and other improvements in the Phoenix area as part of the Regional Transportation Plan for the Maricopa County region. Most projects are funded in part by Proposition 400, a dedicated sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, the az511 app or by calling 511.
