Existing highway road closures due to weather:
Winter weather and crashes have closed multiple highways in northern Arizona, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. Drivers should delay travel across northern Arizona during the current winter storm because heavy snow or crashes could make roads impassable. There is no estimated time to reopen any highways and additional closures are possible depending on weather and crashes.
