PHOENIX –  Interstate 40 is closed in both directions near Kingman, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The westbound lanes are closed at milepost 49 due to a jackknifed semi. The eastbound lanes are closed at milepost 46 due to two disabled semis.

Delays are heavy and motorists are advised to avoid the area. Travel in general is discouraged during the winter storm.

There is no estimated time to reopen the highway.

Winter weather has closed multiple highways in Arizona’s high country, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Interstate 17 and State Route 87 are closed with no estimated time to reopen. 

Extreme winter conditions have resulted in very difficult driving conditions. Motorists are urged to postpone travel in the high country until the storm has passed. Those who decide to travel in the storm should be prepared for an extended time on the road and use chains or 4-wheel drive. Remember to slow down, leave extra room behind the vehicle ahead of you, and pack an emergency kit containing a fully charged cell phone, warm clothing, blankets, food and water, medications and sand or kitty litter in case you get stuck in the snow.

The following highways are closed due to extreme winter conditions:

  • Interstate 40 is closed eastbound at State Route 89
  • Interstate 17 is closed northbound at State Route 179
  • US 191 from mileposts 225 to 254 (just south of Alpine)
  • State Route 73 from US 60 to SR 260 
  • State Route 87 between the Bush Highway and Winslow
  • State Route 260 between Star Valley and Heber, and from east of Camp Verde to SR 87
