The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are developing a dust-detection and warning system along Interstate 10, from Sunshine Boulevard to Picacho Peak Road. The system includes technology that will recognize an approaching dust storm, warn ADOT and drivers of that threat and slow drivers down to a safer speed. The project is funded by a federal FASTLANE grant.
Final Design is anticipated to be complete in 2017.
Construction is anticipated to begin late 2017/early 2018.
This project will be constructed in conjunction with the I-10: State Route 87 to Town of Picacho Widening and Improvement Project (azdot.gov/SR87Picacho).
