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.
