ADOT gives a Christmas gift: No holiday closures

Arizona drivers heading to holiday destinations will not encounter any freeway closures for construction work this weekend. Drivers should be aware of the following safety tips:

  • Check your vehicle ahead of time, including tire pressure, fluid levels and the condition of engine belts.
  • Get a good night’s rest before heading out on a trip. Drowsy driving is unsafe.
  • Buckle up and double-check child safety seats.
  • Be prepared for unscheduled closures due to crashes, disabled vehicles or other incidents.
  • Never drive while impaired. Plan ahead for a designated driver if necessary.
