PHOENIX — Northbound lanes of Interstate 17 are closed at Anthem on the far northern outskirts of the Phoenix area because of an accident.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the closure is expected to be lengthy and that drivers should consider delaying travel or using State Route 87 as an alternate route.

Southbound I-17 remains closed.
