DHS Roadblock - Arizona SR86

April 14, 2005 - Photo #1

Approaching the roadblock from the West, two sets of portable lights are visible along with several vehicles and a few agents as traffic cones direct vehicles off the road and towards a stop sign.

This is the first time in 12 years of driving this route that I've encountered a Border Patrol roadblock along SR86 although I was stopped at another roadblock one mile West of this location in December of 2002 by the TOPD. Tucson is approximately 25 miles to the East and Three Points, a smaller community, is about 5 miles further down the road.
