Recent rain affected several roadways; drivers urged to take it slow as more storms roll in

Motorists throughout Arizona experienced wet roads and a surge of stormy weather yesterday.

So far today, most of the state has received a reprieve from the rain, but forecasts are calling for more storms this evening…

As we head into tonight’s rush hour, ADOT would like to remind drivers how important it is to slow down and drive safely in heavy rain and low visibility conditions.

As you can see in the video above, these big storms have the ability to pour down a lot of rain in a very short amount of time. ADOT highway maintenance teams are on-call and prepared to respond to monsoon-related incidents (check out the video to see what they were dealing with yesterday).

Please visit our website for a list of monsoon safety driving tips.

To stay up to date on highway conditions across Arizona, visit ADOT’s Travel Information site, or call 511. You can also follow us on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) to get the very latest traffic conditions before you head out the door.
