PHOENIX — The highway to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park in northern Arizona is scheduled to close Tuesday for the winter.

The date for Arizona state Route 67's seasonal closure was announced Thursday by the Arizona Department of Transportation, which noted that it doesn't clear snow from the road during the winter when North Rim visitor accommodations are shuttered.

The highway reopens each spring, usually in mid-May.
