PHOENIX (AP) - A section of Interstate 10 near the Arizona-New Mexico border has been reopened after a more than two-hour closure due to high winds and blowing dust.
Traffic update: I-10 in the Willcox area has re-opened.— Dept. Public Safety (@Arizona_DPS) March 31, 2017
The closure Friday morning affected the area from Lordsburg, New Mexico, to U.S. 191, which is just west of Bowie, Arizona.
That area is composed of dry desert and has seen prior closures this year because of blowing dust.
Officials say most of the dust was coming from the New Mexico side.
The section of I-10 was closed about 10 a.m. Friday and then reopened shortly after noon.
