Here’s good news for drivers planning road trips over the Independence Day weekend this year. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) says no construction closures are scheduled on state highways from Wednesday afternoon, July 3, to Monday morning, July 8.

While ADOT focuses on giving motorists a break from closures for improvement projects over the holiday weekend, drivers in turn should focus on safety when behind the wheel.

Steps to take include checking your car’s tire pressure, engine fluid levels and getting adequate rest before starting out on a trip. Packing extra drinking water as part of an emergency travel kit is recommended, especially during Arizona’s summer weather.

While no highway closures are scheduled, drivers should expect the unexpected, which could include stopped traffic due to disabled vehicles, crashes or events such as wildfires. Delays certainly are possible over the holiday weekend due to heavy traffic during peak travel times, including Wednesday and Sunday afternoons.
