Recent storms and fires have come together to wash out portions of Senator Highway

PRESCOTT, AZ – July 8, 2022 – Weather conditions caused extensive damage and washed out a section of the Senator Hwy (Forest Service Road 52) making it unsafe and impassable for low clearance vehicles.  The washed-out section of Senator Highway begins just south of Forest Trail 281 (Venezia Site) and continues south towards Palace Station.  There is no timeline for completion of the repairs, but we anticipate starting work the week of July 11.  




Officials urge all visitors to use caution while driving on forest roads during the monsoon season.  Roads may be impassable due to rocks and trees blocking the roadway or flowing washes and saturated soil. 


For more information, please contact the Bradshaw/Chino Ranger District at 928-443-8000.
