State Route 67 reopens May 15 to Grand Canyon North Rim

Highway from US 89A in Jacob Lake closes each winter

SR 67 on the North Rim of the Grand CanyonPHOENIX – State Route 67 from US 89A at Jacob Lake to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is scheduled to reopen Tuesday, May 15.

After the park’s North Rim facilities close each winter, the Arizona Department of Transportation doesn’t plow the 43-mile highway. It reopens each spring along with park facilities.

State Route 64 is open year-round to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

The winding SR 67 takes motorists through alpine terrain above 8,000 feet elevation to the North Rim, which averages about 9 feet of snow annually. The highway has been closed for winter since Dec. 1.
