PHOENIX — The southbound lanes of State Route 87 at milepost 212 are now reopened after it was damaged Sunday night due to a vehicle fire.
Vehicle fire damage restricted traffic south of Payson, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
A trailer fire damaged the road surface, authorities said and ADOT worked to fix the highway stretch south of Payson.
A right-lane closure will still be required when permanent repairs are done after the holiday weekend, ADOT said.
