No major construction or maintenance closures are scheduled along Phoenix-area freeways this weekend (Dec. 16-19), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

With the holiday travel season underway, ADOT urges drivers to be focused on safety. Obey speed limits, buckle up, avoid distractions and never drive while impaired. In advance of holiday celebrations, arrange for a designated driver if necessary.

Additional freeway-restriction information will be posted at azdot.gov, under ADOT News. Visit the site to also subscribe to ADOT email updates, including weekend restriction information.

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/PhoenixMetro.
