PHOENIX (AP) - Officials say a 15-mile traffic backup Friday evening on northbound Interstate 17 has ended.

The backup was the result of a vehicle wreck and a rush of people leaving Phoenix for the weekend.

Officials recommended that people headed to northern Arizona take State Route 87 through Payson or State Route 89 through Prescott.
