I-10 near Ariz-NM border reopens after dust storms

Posted: Updated:
WILCOX, AZ (AP) -

Interstate 10 in southeastern Arizona near the New Mexico border has been reopened.

The Arizona Department of Transportation on Wednesday afternoon closed I-10 eastbound a few miles east of Willcox due to severe dust storms that limited visibility for motorists.

That was after the New Mexico Department of Transportation closed a 112-mile stretch of I-10 from Lordsburg to Las Cruces because of severe dust storms.

The stretch of freeway was reopened Wednesday evening after the winds died down.
