ADOT: I-17 northbound at SR 169 reopened

CAMP VERDE - Arizona Department of Transportation is reporting that I-17 northbound at SR 169 has reopened, but the right lane remains closed north of SR 169.

The northbound lane at SR 169 at milepost 278 closed entirely around 1:40 p.m. Tuesday because of a police pursuit.

A reportedly stolen work truck out of the Gilbert area is being pursued, said Arizona Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Quentin G. Mehr, and multiple agencies are involved.

Mehr said he had very limited information.

The Verde Independent will update the story as information becomes available.
