PLACE A PHONE CALL TO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIAL

Like letters, phone calls are a great way to make your opinions known to your elected official(s).
When calling the office of a mayor or councilmember, here’s what to expect: 

  1. A legislative assistant will answer the phone.

  2. They’ll ask if you want a response (which isn’t necessary in this case).

  3. They'll take note of what you say and keep track of all the other people who call in regarding the same issue.

When you call, the most important thing is to be clear in what you are calling about. Feel free to make your personal experiences driving on our local roads known. However, also remember to keep your call short. Shorter calls are better at communicating your main point.


See the box below for a suggested phone call script. You can click the button at the bottom to copy the script to your clipboard.

Hello, my name is [insert your name]. I am a constituent from [city or neighborhood]. I don’t need a response.


I am concerned about pavement maintenance in the greater Phoenix area. Recently, the Maricopa Association of Governments committed to a freeway noise investigation in response to complaints from a small but vocal minority--citizens living adjacent to the Loop 101 Price Freeway.


The Arizona Department of Transportation has conducted extensive testing and has determined that diamond grinding a concrete surface provides a much better long-term solution than expensive asphalt rubber overlays, which require frequent repair. Diamond-ground concrete pavements are safe, quiet, smooth, sustainable and, according to ADOT’s study, would costs $3.9 BILLION dollars less than asphalt rubber over a 30-year period. Therefore, they represent the best solution for the taxpayers of Arizona.


Thank you for your time.

Here are a few samples posts and facts you can share to combat misinformation that has been circulated about asphalt rubber roads and diamond-ground concrete pavements:

Join the Coalition for Responsible Roads at www.freewaynoise.com. We are speaking up in support of the many Arizonans who believe a diamond-ground concrete surface represents the best solution for the taxpayers of Arizona. It is safe, quiet, smooth, sustainable, and affordable.

Every day, up to 400,000 Arizonans use the Loop 101 Price Freeway The recently diamond-ground Price Road 101 section now has 20-25% more capacity than the section with asphalt rubber and generates the same or less noise. www.freewaynoise.com/quiet #concrete #diamondgrinding

Compared to asphalt rubber, diamond ground concrete requires significantly less maintenance. Perpetual maintenance of asphalt rubber means higher taxes and increased traffic disruptions. www.freewaynoise.com/affordable

Using diamond ground concrete at the time of construction is five times more cost effective than installing an asphalt rubber overlay. #concrete #diamondgrinding www.freewaynoise.com

Over a span of 30 years, money spent on asphalt rubber road surfaces will reach nearly $8 billion--nearly twice the cost of diamond grinding concrete surfaces. #concrete #diamondgrinding www.freewaynoise.com/affordable

Results of a Maricopa County Medical Study indicate asphalt is hotter than concrete. Check out the infrared images at www.freewaynoise.com/safe. #hotasphalt #concreteiscooler

Arizona ranks number one in the U.S. for windshield damage claims as roads produce potentially 33 BILLION flying rocks. Resulting property damage (especially to windshields) increases insurance costs in Arizona, affecting everyone. www.freewaynoise.com #flyingrocks #concrete #diamondgrinding
