Agencies plan safety campaign on Interstate 17
PHOENIX -- State police and transportation officials are teaming up to conduct a safety enforcement program on Interstate 17 in central Arizona during the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The Department of Public Safety says Highway Patrol and commercial vehicle enforcement officers will be assigned to work along I-17 on Friday and Monday.
The officers will be working between Black Canyon City and the State Route 69 interchange at Cordes Junction.
Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation will use its overhead message boards in the area to display the words ``Safety Corridor - Stay Alert, Stay Alive'' during the holiday weekend.
And portable message boards also will display safety messages such as ``Buckle up'' and be available to advise drivers of incidents ahead.
