Dust Storms

Our mission this week is massive and we’ve got to admit, we are going to need a little help. We’re trying to spread the word on monsoon and dust storm safety and we want to reach as many people as possible, which is where you come in!
At ADOT we always want to give drivers a warning of what’s coming up on the road ahead... Whether it’s an impending freeway closure or a new type of traffic signal, we try our very best to get the word out ahead of time so motorists know what to expect. But, sometimes something will impact our roads (and the ability to drive them) quickly and without much notice, making it all the more difficult to get the message out.
Dust Storm on Highway
Monsoon season officially begins today, and brings with it some potentially hazardous driving conditions that all motorists should be prepared for.
Memorial Day weekend is here and if you’re headed out of town you probably have your travel plans all wrapped up by now. Hopefully those plans already include some safety preparations … if not, here are a few things to think about before hitting the road!
Highway leading into a dust storm
Arizona dust storms sometimes hit suddenly, without much notice at all. Drivers can be caught very quickly in a blinding wall of dust and debris that leaves almost no visibility. While these storms typically happen between May and September, motorists should be aware year-round of the potential danger these high-wind storms create.
