The Coconino National Forest are in the process of reopening many forest roads across the forest. Officials say since warmer weather and wind have dried out and hardened surfaces, roads are now suitable for motorized travel. In the Flagstaff Ranger District, the Ashurst and Marshall lake roads are now reopened. All other roads will be reopened at a future date, as they are still wet and subject to damage from heavy weight. Lower elevation roads, such as those in the Red Rock Ranger District, have been open for a while, as they are often ready for vehicle use several weeks before higher elevation roads are ready. However Schnebly Road has been closed for a while, but is now reopened. On the Mogollon Rim Ranger District, forest roads north and west of State Route 87, and along Lake Mary Road, are reopened. However, all forest roads south and east of State Route 87, and down to the Rim Road, will remain closed until they dry out. Personnel will continue to monitor the condition of the roads that remain closed and will open them as soon as it is safe for travel.
