Drivers should focus on safe driving habits, including buckling up and keeping speeds in check. Never drive while impaired. Arrange for a designated driver or ride service. Please stay alert while obeying lower speed limits within existing freeway improvement project work zones.

Remember, Arizona has a “Move Over” law that requires drivers to move over at least one lane – or slow down if it is not safe to change lanes – when approaching any vehicle with flashing lights pulled to the side of a road or highway.

Project schedules are subject to change due to inclement weather or other factors.

Because unexpected delays can occur due to crashes, disabled vehicles and weather, motorists should:

  • Pack extra drinking water and snacks
  • Get plenty of rest before driving – drowsy driving is unsafe
  • Never drive while impaired – arrange for a designated driver or ride service
  • Check vehicles, including tire pressure, engine belts and fluid levels
  • Be prepared to slow down and use caution in existing highway work zones
  • If traveling to the high country, pack an emergency preparation kit in your vehicle that includes cold-weather clothes and blankets
