The Black Fire in the Gila National Forest, which was discovered 5/13/22, has grown to over 19,000 acres. It has overrun FR 150, north of Black Canyon, and is west of the Meown Work Center, and 24 miles north of Mimbres. FR 150 is closed between Meason Park to the intersection of 150 and Diamond Creek. For more information see:

Southbound, here's a partial gravel/paved detour. From Map B, turn H, 64.8 mi.: At “Y”, bear right following FR 28 toward Willow Creek and Snow Lake. The gravel road may also be signed SR 159 and/or Bursum Rd.This is a one lane road, with gravel/dirt and rocks embedded in the road surface. It is extremely rough in places and certain parts have switchbacks. The Willow Creek USFS Campground is 22.5 miles after turn H. The tiny town of Mogollon is 39.5 miles after turn H. The road becomes paved, and it's another 9.5 miles to the intersection with US 180. At US 180, turn left onto US 180 and follow it for 65 miles to Silver City. See:

Southbound, an easier paved detour begins on map B, at turn D, 34.5 mi., continue west on SR 12 for 40 miles to US 180. Then ride south and east on US 180 for 92 miles to Silver City.
