ADOT also sets closure dates for three White Mountains highways

PHOENIX – As happens every winter because of heavy snowfall in the area, the Arizona Department of Transportation will close State Route 67 between Jacob Lake (US 89A) and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park on Monday, Dec. 4. 

The highway reopens each spring, usually around mid-May, along with visitor accommodations at the North Rim. US 89A will remain open at the junction with SR 67.

ADOT also has set winter closure dates for these state highways in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona, though snowfall may result in earlier closures:

  • State Route 473 between State Route 260 and Hawley Lake: Thursday, Dec. 7

  • State Route 261 between Eagar and Big Lake: Friday, Dec. 29

  • State Route 273 between Sunrise Park and Big Lake: Friday, Dec. 29

In addition, ADOT recently closed the upper unpaved section of State Route 366, which ascends Mount Graham in southeastern Arizona. This regular winter closure begins one-half mile past the Coronado National Forest’s Shannon Campground, at the end of the pavement. 

Before heading out this winter, drivers should call 511 or visit ADOT’s Traveler Information Center at az511.gov for the latest highway conditions around the state. The website features camera images along state highways that give drivers a glimpse of weather conditions in various regions.
