Last 9 miles of SR 88 reopens after Woodbury Fire

Motorists should use caution due to potential for flooding, debris flows

PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Transportation has reopened the last stretch of State Route 88 (Apache Trail) that had been closed since the Woodbury Fire burned more than 100,000 acres immediately east of the roadway. This unpaved section lies between milepost 220 east of Tortilla Flat and milepost 229 just west of the turnoff to the Apache Lake marina.

Motorists using SR 88 should be aware of the possibility of severe flooding and debris flows from areas burned in the Woodbury Fire. Daylight travel is recommended.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT.
