Williams Ranger District implements temporary travel restrictions

Due to warmer temperatures, melting snow and muddy conditions, Kaibab National Forest managers have implemented temporary wet weather motor vehicle travel restrictions on the Williams Ranger District effective indefinitely.

The wet weather restrictions include the temporary closure of many roads and the prohibition of cross-country motor vehicle travel when soils are saturated and resource damage is occurring. A backbone system of roads will remain open to allow motorized forest access.

"We don't expect to have these wet weather travel restrictions in effect for very long," said Williams District Ranger Martie Schramm. "This is a temporary measure we are taking due to the hazardous conditions that exist right now and the potential for long-term damage to forest roads and resources."
