Rock fall closes State Highway 264 on Hopi Reservation

ADOT geologist Nick Priznar briefed us on a rock fall that closed State Highway 264 about a mile east of US 160 on Monday. It's expected to take until Thursday evening to clear the road and reopen it to traffic.

There are photos and a news report at the Arizona Daily Sun paper.

The official ADOT road report provides the details:
