PHOENIX – Valley motorists won’t have to worry about freeway closures over Veterans Day weekend.

The Arizona Department of Transportation announce Thursday that it wasn’t planning any projects that would require shutting down Phoenix-area highways through Monday.

With NASCAR races taking place Friday through Sunday at the remodeled ISM Raceway, traffic could be heavy in the vicinity of the Avondale track.

ADOT offers several ways to keep tabs on traffic in the Valley.

Information about highway conditions is always available at AZ511.gov, by calling 511 and by following the agency’s Twitter feed.

ADOT also has a free app available that provides alerts about major traffic events.

In addition, motorists can sign up for email and text message updates at the ADOT website.
