Getting bad..


Winter weather, crashes, disabled vehicles close highways in northern Arizona

PHOENIX – Both directions of Interstate 40 and southbound US 93 are closed in Kingman because of snow, ice and multiple disabled vehicles, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The I-40 closure is at Stockton Hill Road, near milepost 51. The US 93 closure is at Coyote Pass, milepost 69, which is about 2 miles northwest of I-40.

I-40 eastbound is also closed at SR 95. All traffic must head south on SR 95. 

SR 87 is closed from Payson to Winslow because of snow and ice. This is from mileposts 254-337. State Route 87 southbound just south of Payson at milepost 250 because of multiple crashes.

SR 260 in both directions between Star Valley and Heber. SR 260 eastbound is closed at mp 228, east of I-17. 

Drivers should consider delaying travel across northern Arizona during the current winter storm because heavy snow or crashes could make roads impassable.

Real-time highway conditions are available on ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov, by calling 511 and through ADOT’s Twitter feed, @ArizonaDOT. When a freeway closure or other major traffic event occurs, our free app available at ADOTAlerts.com will send critical information directly to app users in affected areas – where possible, in advance of alternate routes.

NTS the year I was referring to was earlier than the picture you provided. I'm thinking about 25 years ago based on the age of my kids at the time that are now about 40. The banks at Hannigan Meadows were 8-12' tall after the plows went thru.
