Snowfall around Arizona means the winter driving season is under way.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is already closing a few roadways in the higher elevations. The closures take effect every year due to the large accumulations of snow and ice on highways.

ADOT has already closed State Route 473 to Hawley Lake for the winter.

State Route 261 between State Route 260 and Big Lake and State Route 273 between Sunrise Park and Big Lake will both be closed on Wednesday, Dec. 15.

All three highways are located northeast of Show Low in the White Mountains, near Sunrise Park Resort. The annual closures do not affect access to Sunrise.

Also closed for the winter is State Route 67 between Jacob Lake and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
