SAN SIMON, AZ (AP) -
A section of Interstate 10 on both sides of the Arizona-New Mexico border were closed in both directions for the second consecutive day because of blowing dust.
Arizona Department of Transportation officials say eastbound lanes of I-10 in southeastern Arizona near San Simon were closed about noon Monday along with westbound lanes of the freeway at Lordsburg, New Mexico about 15 miles west of the state line.
Both sides of the freeway reopened around 5 p.m.
On Sunday, a multiple-car crash near San Simon closed I-10 for several hours after severe wind and dust caused zero visibility in the area.
