Traffic Control To Start Saturday At Lockett Meadow

As fall colors start, one popular viewing spot is being managed for traffic. Coconino National Forest officials say they will manage traffic to and from Lockett Meadow over the first few weekends of October to ensure public safety. Beginning Saturday, forest service personnel will be positioned at the bottom of the road that leads to the meadow. Officers will not allow uphill traffic once the maximum capacity reaches 100 vehicles at the top. More vehicles will be allowed as other vehicles exit. The road to the meadow is narrow, rocky and rough alongside a steep cliff that can be unsafe and difficult for opposing traffic to pass one another. Lockett Meadow Campground has 17 campsites and it’s $16 a night to camp. The sites are on a first come, first served basis. The 100 vehicle restriction doesn’t apply to campers.
