The Navajo County Board of Supervisors has approved a multimillion-dollar plan to rehabilitate a levee that protects Winslow, historic Route 66 and a rail line from flooding on the Little Colorado River. The county has been saving for the improvements over the past decade, but officials say they may ask Winslow to pick up some of the $66 million cost.
