PHOENIX – – Drivers won’t have to detour around any full freeway closures for construction or maintenance projects in the Phoenix area this weekend (Dec. 13-16), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. No weekend closures are scheduled.

As the holiday travel season continues, drivers should focus on safe driving and stay alert while obeying lower speed limits within existing freeway improvement project work zones.
