ADOT: Weather moves up I-17 closure

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Weather conditions have forced an earlier than expected closure of a portion of Interstate 17 south of Camp Verde.   

The Arizona Department of Transportation is constructing a climbing lane.

Traffic on northbound I-17 is stopped at the State Route 169 junction and southbound I-17 traffic will be stopped at General Crook Trail until the area is reopened.

A long closure is not anticipated, ADOT said.  

The overnight closure that was planned between midnight and 3 a.m. on Wednesday has been canceled.
