No Valley freeway construction closures scheduled this weekend
ADOT gives drivers a break with NASCAR events in Phoenix area
PHOENIX – No freeway construction closures are scheduled in the Phoenix area this weekend (Nov. 9-12), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. With NASCAR races taking place in the West Valley, ADOT is working to keep freeways open over the Veterans Day weekend.
Drivers should focus on safety when getting behind the wheel. Please buckle up, avoid distractions, never drive while impaired and be prepared to slow down and merge safely in existing work zones
Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT. When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, our free app available at ADOTAlerts.com will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas – where possible, in advance of alternate routes.
Any additional freeway-restriction information will be posted at azdot.gov, under ADOT News. You can also subscribe to receive ADOT weekend restriction information by email. Another great way to find more about ADOT’s projects and programs to improve Arizona’s transportation system is the ADOT Blog at azdot.gov/blog.
ADOT plans and constructs new freeways, additional lanes and other improvements as part of the Regional Transportation Plan for the Maricopa County region. The primary funding source for regional freeway improvements is a half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2004. More information about ADOT projects and the regional plan is available at azdot.gov/projects.
