Northbound I-17 closed at Sedona

Posted: Updated:

ARIZONA (KOLD) - Interstate 17 northbound has been closed at the junction of State Route 179, the Sedona turnoff, due to snowfall in Northern Arizona as part of the flurry of winter weather.

Traffic is redirected to southbound I-17 because State Route 89A, the only alternative, remains closed.

In addition, Interstate 40 may close east of Flagstaff due to high winds and blowing snow as was experienced during last winter's storms.

As conditions change, ADOT will inform drivers via the media, roadway message boards and other communication.

Before heading out on the roads, drivers are encouraged to call 5-1-1 or log on to ADOT's Traveler Information Center at www.az511.gov for the latest highway conditions around the state. T

he website features images along state highways that give drivers a glimpse of weather conditions in various regions.

Driver safety tips are available from the Arizona Department of Public Safety or from ADOT KnowSnow.
