We're opening some freeways this afternoon - I-17 and I-40 especially. Thanks for your patience. It was a huge storm and our folks on the plows have been working hard to open the roads. Still more work to be done.— Arizona DOT (@ArizonaDOT) November 29, 2019
Looks like SR 89 has reopened between Drake and Ash Fork, and US 60 is in the process of reopening between Globe and Show Low. On US 60 it may be slower than normal - we're sending a plow ahead of vehicles just to make sure the road is good. Thanks for your patience.— Arizona DOT (@ArizonaDOT) November 29, 2019
Avoid SR 74 between I-17 and Lake Pleasant Pkwy. Highway closed in both directions due to a flooded low-lying area. Consider using detours that include Loop 303 and Lake Pleasant Pkwy. New River Rd also is not available north of SR 74 due to runoff across roadway. pic.twitter.com/DPHyFxydty— Arizona DOT (@ArizonaDOT) November 29, 2019
UPDATE: US 60 closed between Show Low and Globe. Multiple highways in northern Arizona are closed due to a strong winter storm. This includes I-40 and northbound I-17. PLEASE POSTPONE TRAVEL until the storm passes.#azwx #KnowSnow pic.twitter.com/v2ZbvmXQko— Arizona DOT (@ArizonaDOT) November 29, 2019
The City of Prescott Public Works Department was activated at around 2am this morning as snow began to accumulate quickly. All 14 trucks are working the major streets in Prescott. We ask that people stay off the roads if at all possible so that the plows can keep the roads clear— Prescott Police Dept (@PrescottPD) November 29, 2019
