The Ghostbuster:
It makes it look like the roadway makes sharp turns both to the right and to the left. Couldn't the DOT have designed the pictures to have the roads go straight instead of curving it cockeyed?

If you click on each picture, they're all 3D animations you can use your mouse to look around. In still-form it looks odd but when you click on each of them they render correctly.

Is it desert soil and monsoon weather related or is it heat related?

From what I recall the first year it was laid down the heat was a huge issue causing it crumble and chunk up into marbles (especially on AZ 101).  I can’t fathom that likely bodes well for long term maintenance given the heat coupled with heavy loads over a decade.

Damn, they should've gone with the primary (black) tires (rubber) rather than the alternate (red) ones! {INDYCAR reference for those of you wondering what the hell I'm talking about}

Seriously, I remember similar problems back in 1967 with the road that became US 93 (then US 466) between Hoover Dam & Kingman due to the desert soils. Being Midwesterners, my dad was unaware of the situation with that particular roadway and we stopped to get our tires balanced in Kingman thinking that was the cause of the very rough ride (of course the locals didn't seem to mind selling us something we likely didn't need).

Plutonic Panda:
ADOT is recommending 34 million to be spent to reopen a section of AZ-88(Apache Trail) that was washed out back in 2019. Currently no solid funding has been identified.

Plutonic Panda:
ADOT approved the 25 year plan:
