FLAGSTAFF—The Arizona Department of Transportation has closed several highways statewide tonight due to blowing and drifting snow and icy roadways—conditions treacherous for drivers. ADOT’s top priority during this major winter storm is the safety of all travelers.

  The following roadways are now closed:

  ·        

Northbound I-17 at milepost 299

·        

Northbound SR 87 from mileposts 265 to 341

• SR 260 is closed in both directions from mileposts 255 to 302

• US 180 is closed in both directions from mileposts 236 to 248

• Southbound SR 73 from mileposts 347 to 357

  There is no estimated time for reopening these roads. ADOT encourages drivers to delay their travel until tomorrow when the storm passes to avoid dangerous travel conditions.

  Drivers can get the latest information about highway restrictions and closures via ADOT’s Travel Information site at www.az511.gov or by calling 5-1-1.

  ADOT urges drivers — especially those who rarely experience driving in snow — to visit the “Know Snow” Web page before enjoying the winter weather. “Know Snow” information is available online at www.azdot.gov/knowsnow or by calling 602-712-7355. Also available are travel tips, how to prepare your vehicle for the winter, phone numbers, weather terms, and ADOT’s snow-removal maps and plans
