Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) News

Below is video from the fire that has closed I-17 between SR 260 and SR 169. Southbound drivers may take SR 260 through Payson to SR 87. Northbound drivers, may use SR 169 through Prescott to SR 89 northbound to I-40 eastbound to reach Flagstaff. We encourage drivers to avoid SR 89A through Jerome.

Our traffic cameras catch a lot of crashes, but this is an unusual one. Earlier this morning a vehicle involved in a collision went through a fence and down the embankment next to I-17. In the photo below, traffic was temporarily stopped while a tow truck pulled the vehicle back up the embankment.
