State Route 377 and State Route 277 will remain closed for an extended period due to brush fires,  according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

There is no estimated time for the roadways to reopen. Motorists should consider delaying or altering their travel plans because several brush fires are burning in the area.  

ADOT suggests using State Route 77 and State Route 260 instead.

Brush fires have closed State Route 377 in both directions between Holbrook and Heber-Overgaard and State Route 277 from Heber-Overgaard to Snowflake, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

There is no estimated time for the roadways to reopen. Motorists should consider delaying or altering their travel plans because several brush fires are burning in the area.

ADOT suggests the following detour: State Route 77 to State Route 260.

With summer temperatures at hand and the landscape extremely dry across Arizona, dragging chains, tossing cigarette butts or even having underinflated tires can start fires along state highways.

To get ready for fire season, Arizona Department of Transportation crews mow vegetation along highway shoulders in the winter and spring. They remove brush, thin trees and spray fire retardant within the ADOT right-of-way to prevent fires and slow the spread of those that occur.
