Arizona's Highways to White Mountains lakes reopening for summer
PHOENIX — Traveling to the White Mountains, a popular summer destination for Phoenix residents and fishing enthusiasts, will get a little easier as several highways that were partially closed during the winter season will reopen on April 16, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Four state highways are closed each winter due to the significant amount of snowfall and are reopened in the spring. State Route 67 between Jacob Lake (U.S. 89A) and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon will remain closed until mid-May.
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
