The Arizona Department of Transportation will reopen three state highways to lakes in the White Mountains this week. Garin Groff is a spokesman for ADOT. He said the routes should reopen on Thursday.

"Two of the highways lead to Big Lake," Groff said. "They are 261 from Eagar to Big Lake and 273 from Sunrise Park to Big Lake. Also 473 will open from State Route 260 to Hawley Lake.”

Groff said those highways close every winter because the parks at the end of them are closed during the cold season. He said it’s typical for them to reopen during this time of year.
