Happy Independence Day from ADOT. No full closures for construction or maintenance are scheduled along state highways this weekend (July 5-7). Please use caution and allow extra time, especially during peak travel periods over the Fourth of July and the weekend. Be prepared for possible lane or ramp restrictions in existing work zones.

A) Southbound Loop 101 (Price Freeway) on-ramp at Guadalupe Road and southbound off-ramp at Elliot Road closed overnight from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights (July 5-6) for widening project.

Be a safe driver during Arizona’s summer travel season. Check your vehicle, including tire pressure, ahead of your trip. Be patient, obey speed limits, buckle up and never drive while impaired. Arrange for a designated driver or ride service. Be prepared for unscheduled closures or delays by packing extra water, snack foods and a kit with other emergency supplies, including a flashlight, prescription medications and fully charged cell phone.
