The 43-mile (69-kilometer) highway that provides paved-road access to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is set to reopen May 15 after its seasonal closure.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says State Route 67 has been closed for winter since Dec. 1.
SR 67 connects with US 89A at Jacob Lake. The route passes through alpine terrain in part of the Kaibab National Forest before entering Grand Canyon National Park.
