Arizona Department of Transportation is warning drivers to avoid Interstate 17 at all costs.

Only one southbound lane is open near Badger Springs Road, and the northbound lanes are closed at Sunset Point.

ADOT estimates a 10 mile backup going southbound and it is currently growing.

There are alternative routes available, but avoid the traveling in this area.
