Travel Restrictions Still in Effect
on Tusayan Ranger District
WILLIAMS, Ariz. – Several forest roads
on the Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest are still
closed to vehicle access due to public safety and resource damage concerns
related to wet, muddy and hazardous conditions.
Almost all roads on the east side of
state Highway 64 and south of the Grand Canyon National Park boundary,
except for the area known as the Upper Basin north of the Coconino Rim,
are closed to motorized travel until conditions improve. Over-snow
vehicles are exempt from the closure.
The roads on the west side of state
Highway 64 south of the Grand Canyon National Park boundary remain open.
However, motorists may also encounter wet conditions there and are
urged to use caution.
On the east side of state Highway 64,
the area known as the Upper Basin north of the Coconino Rim, along with
Forest Road 307, remain open to motorized vehicles with four-wheel-drive
All potential visitors to the Tusayan
Ranger District should contact the district office at (928) 638-2443 prior
to traveling in order to check current closures and conditions. As
soon as conditions improve, forest managers will lift the motor vehicle
restrictions, and the roads will be reopened to motorized travel.
