Highways Open; Most Schools To Start Late


Highway 87 was closed from Monday night, Feb. 4 at 11 p.m. until 7:52 a.m. Tuesday morning due to slippery road conditions.

This morning both Highway 87 and SR260 are currently open to all traffic with no restrictions.

Schools in Tonto Village will be closed today.

Pine--Strawberry Elementary School Principal Mike Clark said the school in Pine will open today at 10 a.m. and that the high school bus leaves Pine at 9:30.

Buses in Pine are scheduled to run this morning but may not be able to get to all of their stops due to weather conditions, Clark said.

Payson schools will also be on a one-and-a-half-hour delay this morning.

Clark said buses in Pine should be able to make all their regular stops this afternoon.
