Improvement projects will require closures and other restrictions along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend and early next week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers should allow extra travel time and consider alternate routes while restrictions are planned this weekend, according to a release.
In the east Valley, they include:
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, a free app available at ADOTAlerts.com will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas --- where possible, in advance of alternate routes, the release states.
Additional freeway restrictions such as ramp or frontage road closures will be posted at azdot.gov, under ADOT News. Visit the site to also subscribe to ADOT email and text updates, including future weekend restriction information.
Another way to find more about ADOT’s projects and programs 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 at azdot.gov/projects.
