"With a Lake View" The view of Tempe Town Lake from Loop 202 Red Mountain near Center Parkway is always spectacular. These photos, courtesy of ADOT's az511 cameras, were taken today before, during and after sunset.

The median barrier walls are taking shape on the project to widen Interstate 10 between Casa Grande and Tucson, from just south of Earley Road to Interstate 8. The project will increase freeway capacity, improve auxiliary lanes and enhance aesthetics of the new roadway. More project details: https://bit.ly/2HpbDfp

UPDATE: All lanes open and debris largely remooved. * Here at ADOT, we often get reports of cattle on our rural roadways. This afternoon, we got a report of manure on SR 347 in Maricopa near MP 175. Needless to say, it's a stinky situation! Cleanup crews are on the way.

It's officially fall, but still feels like summer in many areas. Even Flagstaff is expecting above normal temperatures this week.

Midnight musings: We do love a full moon! It almost makes headlights look unnecessary for this stretch of the L-303 at 35th Avenue. Even with the extra light, remember to keep driving safely out there! And, this probably goes without saying, avoid werewolves.
