Road to White Mountains reopens after mudslide damage

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - The Arizona Department of Transportation reopened Highway 191 through Hannagan Meadow.

It was closed earlier this week due to a mudslide, triggered by a monsoon downpour.

There could still delays from mile marker 232 to 239 as workers continue to repair the road.

Highway 191 runs through the Apache National Forest with Hannagan Meadow located about halfway between Clifton/Morenci Mine and Springerville/Eager, Arizona.

This is one of the few paved roads into the White Mountains.
