driver safety

Phoenix-area freeways will be free of construction closures this weekend (Jan. 5-8). The Arizona Department of Transportation is not scheduling any closures or major lane restrictions along Valley freeways from Friday night through Monday morning.

Drivers should focus on safety while behind the wheel, including obeying speed limits, avoiding distractions and never driving while impaired. Please use caution when approaching and traveling through existing work zones.

The Arizona Department of Transportation reminds drivers to be prepared as a mid-week storm system crosses the state. The National Weather Service has issued a high wind advisory from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. Winds up to 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph are possible and motorists should be ready for low visibility due to blowing dust. Even though monsoon season is over, blowing dust is possible throughout the year.
