Interstate 17 northbound at milepost 307, about 20 miles north of Camp Verde

Highway 80 between Tombstone and Bisbee; Highway 90 between Sierra Vista and the Highway 80 juncture
Additionally, Highway 93 is closed in both directions at milepost 170, about 25 northwest of Wickenburg, because of a crash (as of 8 p.m. Thursday).
