Seven-Mile Stretch Closed Last Thursday Due to Snowstorms; Traffic Detoured through Mormon Lake Village during Closure

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Coconino County Public Works crews are clearing a previously closed seven-mile stretch of Lake Mary Road about 35 miles southeast of Flagstaff and the roadway is scheduled to fully reopen by noon.

Lake Mary Road, which is also known as Forest Highway 3 (FH3), was closed on Thursday morning from the north entrance of Mormon Lake (near the scenic overlook) to the south entrance of Mormon Lake. The closure was implemented in the interest of public safety during a winter storm that dropped approximately three feet of snow in the area and created hazardous driving conditions from blowing snow.

During the closure, traffic on Lake Mary Road was detoured along the West Side Mormon Lake Road which loops Mormon Lake and goes through Mormon Lake Village. The County would like to thank the traveling public for their patience during this closure.

When this section of Lake Mary Road is reopened, motorists are asked to travel with caution as some icy areas may still exist.
