The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) announced that no full closures are scheduled along state highways, including Phoenix-area freeways, over the Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27. ADOT asks residents to be an alert, patient driver, and for those traveling out of town:

  • Be prepared for hot or very warm weather in many areas. Check your vehicle, including tire pressure.
  • Buckle up, obey speed limits and pack an emergency kit. That should include extra drinking water.
  • Expect the unexpected, including unscheduled closures.
