Forest Service Announces Houston Mesa Road Closures

Temporary weekday overnight closures of a portion of the Houston Mesa Road (Forest Road 199) will begin on Monday, February 20, 2017.  The Houston Mesa Road (Forest Road 199) between Water Wheel Recreation Site and East Verde River Second Crossing (south of Whispering Pines) will be closed from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., every Monday night through Friday morning from February 20, through March 22.  This closure is occurring to allow construction of the Town of Payson C.C. Cragin Waterline.  This section of Houston Mesa Rd is too narrow to safely perform some of the pipe installation activities without these night time closures.

The closed section will extend from approximately 1.5 miles south of Whispering Pines to approximately 1.0 mile south of Whispering Pines.

Anyone with questions regarding this closure is asked to contact the Town of Payson at (928) 474-5242.


Full daytime closures of State Route 77 continue
as ADOT crews continue work to remove potentially hazardous rocks in the Dripping Springs area. The work will take place between mileposts 154 and 161 south of Globe on January 3 - March 30  from 10:00 A.M.  to 3:00 P.M. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Monday.


With a population of 53,500 residents and covering 4,796 square miles, Gila County has always been a great place to live, work and play.  Gila County is in Central Arizona and contains the Tonto Apache Reservation and parts of the Fort Apache and San Carlos Reservations. The county was formed in 1881 from parts of Maricopa and Pinal Counties, and later added the northern portion of the county from Yavapai County.  Cities and Towns in Gila County include Globe, Hayden, Miami, Payson, Star Valley and Winkelman, along with a large number of rural unincorporated communities.  Gila County is located on the northeastern edge of the Sonoran Desert, and covers a wide variety of life zones, including desert, high desert plains, chaparral, pinon-juniper and pine forests.  There are a number of popular recreation areas in Gila County, including Roosevelt Lake, Tonto National Monument, Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, and Fossil Creek, along with several designated Wilderness Areas and popular camping areas within the Tonto National Forest.
