Loop 101 resurfacing in East Valley requires series of weekend closures

Restrictions timed to start after Cactus League season ends

PHOENIX – Work to add a new layer of smooth rubberized asphalt on Loop 101 (Pima Freeway) in the Scottsdale area will require a series of weekend freeway closures starting Friday night (April 1), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Drivers should plan ahead and consider alternate routes when sections of Loop 101 are closed, starting this weekend with southbound lanes between Thomas and McKellips roads from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday (April 4). State Route 51 and Interstate 17 are possible north-south alternate freeway routes.
Other sections of Loop 101 between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 (Red Mountain Freeway) are scheduled to be closed on weekends through mid-June while crews add the new top layer of rubberized asphalt on the freeway.

ADOT to open new ramps linking Loop 303, Grand Avenue (US 60) this weekend

Some late night restrictions needed before connections start to open

PHOENIX – New ramps connecting Loop 303 and Grand Avenue (US 60) in Surprise will open to traffic this weekend, a key milestone for the project to improve the interchange that links the two roadways. The northbound Loop 303 on- and off-ramps and southbound Loop 303 on-ramp at Grand Avenue are scheduled to open by 11:30 p.m. Friday (April 1), according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Safety improvement project continues to make progress on SR 169

Safety improvement project continues to make progress on SR 169
Drivers should expect delays next week as work continues

Earlier this year, the Arizona Department of Transportation began a safety improvement project on State Route 169, which included new left-turn lanes at Cherry Creek Road (milepost 9.3) and Orme Road (milepost 4.5).

For the past few months, crews have been working on the addition of turn lanes at milepost 9.3 at Cherry Creek Road.On Monday (April 4), crews will restripe the roadway, as they have completed the new turn lanes. As a result, drivers will be guided through the work zone with a pilot car and flaggers between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Delays of up to 15 minutes are expected.

On Tuesday and Wednesday (April 5 and 6), crews will begin work at the Orme Road and Old Cherry Road intersections (milepost 4.5), which will also result in traffic delays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to allow crews to install barrier and prepare a safe work zone for new turn lanes.

TIPS TO HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER

TIPS TO HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER
If you are one of the millions of adults who have trouble falling asleep, you probably know the drill: No exercise before bedtime, try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day and limit the amount of alcohol you consume. But it could take more than this. And the payoff is huge: You get a good night's sleep without medication. To help you sleep better at night, try these four behavioral changes during the day:
1. Exposure to sunlight early in the morning and again at dusk.
Why? Exposure to natural light at dawn and dusk can help synchronize your body clock, making it easier to fall asleep at night and easier to get up and be alert in the morning, according to researchers from the University of Colorado in Boulder.
2. Consume no caffeine after 3 p.m.
Why? Caffeine is designed to keep you awake and alert and can stay in your system as long as 14 hours, according to WebMD. It can not only make it difficult to fall asleep, but also to stay asleep…

THINGS TO NEVER, EVER SAY ON FACEBOOK

THINGS TO NEVER, EVER SAY ON FACEBOOK
Facebook is great for sharing the most special of life's moments. Like pictures of a cake, funny links, or your need for an able body to help you move a sofa. But those status updates are an open announcement to everyone you know. Some information is unwelcome. Some of it is unbearable. So, for the sake of all your friends, the following public statements are no longer allowed.
1. The birthday thank you
The only thing less sincere than the Facebook birthday wish (copy, paste the words "happy birthday!") is the day-after status update, expressing your gratitude for the dozens of perfunctory congratulations from people you barely know anymore. All this serves to do is remind everyone that it was, quite recently, your birthday, in the wispy hope that someone will realize they forgot and shoot you a belated message. You don't need to shout thank you into the wind. If someone in real life wishes you a happy birthday, thank them. That…

Pizza Night Savings!

Pizza Night Savings!
When it's pizza night and you want the most food for your money, always order a large pie -- even if you're eating alone. NPR reporter Quoctrung Bui did the math so you don't have to. Bui analyzed 74,476 pizza prices from 3,678 pizza restaurants nationwide to find out how the price of pizza changes with the size of the pie. The bottom line, according to NPR, is that one 16-inch pizza has about the same area as one and one-third 14-inch pizzas or four 8-inch pizzas. It may seem like a 16-inch pizza is twice as large as an 8-inch pizza, but it's actually four times as big. Since a pizza is a circle, the area increases with the square of the radius. And that is why a larger pizza is a better bargain. A 16-inch pizza costs, on average, about $16.59. To get the same amount of food buying 8-inch pizzas, you would have to buy four pizzas, which will run you $33, on average. That's pretty much double the price of a 16-inch pizza.

Other Thoughts.......
Melissa Etheridge says she considered Brad Pitt as a sperm donor before choosing David Crosby. I guess I'm surprised I wasn't asked, since I fall somewhere between the two... mostly on the Crosby side.
I don't remember which late night TV host said it, but it was along the lines of "I went to a Donald Trump rally the other day and a hockey game broke out!"
I was saying the other day that I'm a bit concerned that the F.B.I. managed to crack into iPhones. But Siri told me not to worry about it.

I see a day in the not-too-distant future where the entire family will sit around with virtual reality headgear, experiencing in 3D what it must be like for a whole family to be sitting around together.

PULLED OVER BY A COP? THIS IS WHAT TO DO

PULLED OVER BY A COP? THIS IS WHAT TO DO
You blew through a red light. You sped down the highway oblivious to the posted speed limit. And you just got caught. You see the flashing red lights in your rearview mirror, and you pull over. Now what do you do? Before you panic, cry or get belligerent, know this: A traffic stop is the most common reason for contact with the police, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. WTOP News in Washington, DC, consulted with AAA for specific advice of what to do -- and not do -- when a cop pulls you over:
When you see the flashing lights, follow the police officer's instructions. Slow down, use your turn signal and pull your vehicle well off to the side of the road.Stay in your vehicle and turn off the engine and radio.Keep your seat belt fastened until the officer has seen you wearing it.Take a deep breath and don't panic. Remain calm while the officer explains why you were stopped.If you are stopped at night, turn on your interior lights…

One proud daddy! Seth Meyers got a little emotional as he told the story of son's birth during his Late Night monologue on Tuesday, March 29. The excited new dad talked his audience through a very unexpected Easter Sunday, which resulted in the birth of his first child, two weeks before the baby's due date. Taking time to thank all the key players in his son's birth story (in particular, his doorman and his Uber driver, Tariq), Meyers described his wife's journey to hospital in hilariously graphic detail, including the fact she was on all fours in the back of the taxi, yelling out an open window! The proud pop then revealed the name he and wife, Alexi Ashe, have given their son. "We named our son Ashe, which is my wife's maiden name," the show host explained. "I can't think of a better way to honor what she did," he added, referring to Alexi's drug-free delivery. "The middle name is Olsen, which is my mother's …
