SR 88 reopens from SR 188 to Apache Lake marina

Highway remains closed from Tortilla Flat to marina turnoff

PHOENIX – A section of State Route 88 (Apache Trail) has reopened from SR 188 to the Apache Lake marina turnoff after being closed because of flood damage.

Motorists can now access Apache Lake by taking SR 188 either from US 60 or SR 87 and taking SR 88 west. High clearance vehicles are recommended on this unpaved section of SR 88.

Motorists using SR 88 should be aware of the possibility of severe flooding and debris flows from areas affected by the Woodbury Fire, which burned 100,000 acres immediately east of and uphill from the highway.

SR 88 remains closed indefinitely between milepost 213 at Tortilla Flat to milepost 228 near Apache Lake because of damage from flooding and debris.
