Accident closes northbound I-17 outside Camp Verde

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF -- Motorists heading north on Interstate 17 just outside Camp Verde will face some traffic delays.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says a UPS truck that lost its trailer had been blocking the northbound lanes. One of the lanes was reopened just after 11 a.m.

The closure is about 27 miles south of Flagstaff near a pulloff that overlooks the Mogollon Rim.

ADOT spokesman Rod Wigman says the area typically is a problem during times of heavy snow.
