Chiang Mai Highway Collapses, Closed Until Tuesday

Heavy rain and flooding collapsed Highway 1263 in Chiang Mai, forcing the closure of the Mae Chaem-Mae Hong Son route until at least Tuesday.

The Highway Department in Mae Hong Son’s Khun Yuam District said washed out soil caused the subsidence about 3 p.m. Sunday in a section of Highway 1263 between Chiang Mai’s Mae Chaem and Khun Yuam’s Mae U Kho Subdistrict. The area was undergoing roadwork on a new bridge.
