TEP confirms that Interstate 10 eastbound at Willcox is back open in Southeast Arizona near the New Mexico state line.

New Mexico Department of Transportation closed a 112-mile stretch on Interstate 10 from Lordsburg to Las Cruces earlier Wednesday due to severe dust storms in New Mexico, according to Arizona Department of Transportation.

ADOT closed eastbound I-10 at milepost 355, a few miles east of Willcox, in response to the NMDOT's road closure.

DPS closed eastbound I-10 at milepost 352.

New Mexico closed I-10 from the state line to Demming, NM in both directions.
