thesnowyroad White Mountain Highways Closing For The Winter
ADOT is closing some roadways in the White Mountains for the winter.

State Route 473 to Hawley Lake already is closed.

State Route 261 between State Route 260 and Big Lake, as well as State Route 273 between Sunrise Park and Big Lake will be closed on Dec. 15.

The highways typically reopen by mid-May.

The department says motorists should carry snow chains or cables when traveling on snowpacked and icy roads.

State officials will respond to vehicle slide-offs but are urging motorists to slow down, drive defensively and allow extra time for winter trips.
