    The wonderful wintry weather Pima County has experienced recently does come with a few drawbacks. One is the road closures around the region, particularly where the washes and creeks run over the streets. 
    Despite the temporary inconvenience, the public should be aware these closures are done with their safety in mind. 

    Flowing water, even relatively shallow water, can cause a car to stall or be swept away. Flooded roadways can have large amounts of sediment and become unstable and collapse, resulting in holes much deeper than the road surface. 

    For your safety, please obey road closure signs and never enter flooded areas.

    The following areas are currently closed: 
    • General Hitchcock Highway on Mt. Lemmon
    • Soldiers Trail: Limberlost at the Agua Caliente Wash
    • Tanque Verde Loop Road at Tanque Verde Wash
    • Wentworth Road at Tanque Verde Creek
    • Overton at the CDO Wash
    For weather related road closures after business hours and on weekends, please contact the Pima County Sheriff’s Road Condition Hotline: (520) 547-7510.
