I-17, I-40 among highways closed because of winter storm

PHOENIX - Poor driving conditions caused by a winter storm have forced the closure of multiple state highways, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. ADOT recommends avoiding travel in storm-impacted areas unless it is necessary.

The following highways are closed:

• Interstate 40 eastbound at Ash Fork, milepost 146

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

• US 60 between Globe and Superior

• 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).
