MOUNT GRAHAM -State Route 366 (Swift Trail) is scheduled to reopen to traffic for the season above the Shannon Campground on Mount Graham on Thursday, April 15.

Due to an ongoing roadway repair project, motorists on SR 366 should expect lane closures with delays of up to 30 minutes. Signals or flaggers will be used to control traffic.

The contractor may work on two locations at a time, thus multiple 30 minute delays are possible.

Crews expect to work primarily on weekdays, but some weekend work is possible.
