ADOT reopens roads in White Mountains

ADOT reopens roads to lakes in White Mountains for summer season

SHOW LOW – The Arizona Department of Transportation will reopen several highways in the White Mountains that are closed each winter after the first snowfall, beginning Monday (April 16).

The following highways will reopen on April 16:
    State Route 261 between Eagar and Big Lake
    State Route 273 between Sunrise Park and Big Lake
    State Route 473 between State Route 260 and Hawley Lake

ADOT encourages Arizonans to enjoy the mountains this summer and return safely by observing the following tips:
    Make sure you and your passengers are buckled in
    Check your vehicle before you go; proper tire pressure is important
    Be patient (don’t speed and don’t follow other vehicles too closely)
    Get an adequate amount of sleep before your trip
    Bring extra water and food
    Build some extra travel time into your schedule
    Never drink and drive
    Before you leave, check for information about highway restrictions across Arizona at ADOT’s traveler information web site, or dial 5-1-1
