Happy holidays!

2011 is quickly wrapping up and what a year it has been!

Here at the ADOT Blog, we’ve enjoyed being able to showcase some of the interesting and exciting things that have happened at the Arizona Department of Transportation this year.

We’ll keep on posting in 2012 but the blog is going on a break for the rest of 2011. We’re going to be back the first week of the new year armed with fresh topics, fun facts and some more of those great videos! 

But before the holiday hiatus, there are a few things we want to let you know about …
  • It’s just the blog that’s taking a week-long vacation! All ADOT and MVD offices will be open EXCEPT for Monday, Dec. 26 and Monday, Jan. 2 when they’ll close in recognition of the Christmas and New Year holidays.  
  • There are plenty of places to find ADOT information online. Be sure to check out the ADOT Twitter feed and Facebook page. If you’re looking for detailed traffic conditions head over to
  • Some good news for anyone with Arizona holiday travel plans. There will be NO state highway construction closures over Christmas and New Year’s weekends! Although no major restrictions are scheduled, drivers should be prepared for existing work zones and for some ongoing projects and possible increased traffic before and at the end of each holiday weekend over the next two weeks.
We hope you all stay safe and have a very happy holiday season … and, if you happen to be looking for some winter reading material you can always scroll through our blog archives!
