Interstate 10 eastbound is closed from mileposts 352 and 391 west of the New Mexico state line due to a dust storm, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The I-10 is also closed in both directions in New Mexico from the state line to MP 20.

There is no estimated time to reopen the highway.

An alternate route is US 191 northbound to US 70 east bound to Lordsburg, N.M.

“We want everyone to make it home safe,” said Governor Ducey. “Paying attention when driving through work zones will keep safe the men and women who build and maintain Arizona’s roads as well as everyone traveling through work zones.”

Being alert and paying attention to signage in work zones is especially important for motorists because national statistics show that vehicle occupants account for more than 80 percent of traffic fatalities that occur in work zones. In 2017 in Arizona, nearly 1,300 crashes occurred in work zones, resulting in 11 fatalities and 30 serious injuries.
