THURSDAY FEB 21, 2019 UPDATE: Coconino County Public Works crews are working to keep all county roads open and passable throughout the current snowstorm. Crews give priority to main arterial and collector road followed by residential roads. Motorists are asked to drive for conditions and give snowplows plenty of room as they work to plow area roadways.

As a reminder, County Ordinance 86-6 prohibits motorists from parking on county roadways between Nov. 1 and April 1 on a 24-hour basis. Residents are asked to park their vehicles five to 10 feet from the roadway to allow ample room for snowplows to pass.
