On I-10 several closures reported; NM 90 also closed

I-10 WEST AND EASTBOUND is CLOSED from Las Cruces to the Texas state line due to roadways being iced over. Snow flurries mixed with rain and freezing conditions have created dangerous driving conditions. Please avoid this section of roadway and any others that are reported closed, and seek an alternate route should you need to travel. Motorists traveling will be detoured at the I-10/I-25 Interchange, and will have access back to Las Cruces at the University exit off of I-10 and I-25.

NM-90 from Lordsburg to Silver City is now CLOSED. The NMDOT has Maintenance personnel detailed out in full operation as they work across the state conducting snow removal operations. Motorists are encouraged to avoid any travels along the routes listed below as closures, and to exercise extreme caution during these events.

US-70 from NASA exit mm 161 to White Sands Missile Range mm 71 is closed due to snow and low visibility over the San Augustine pass. Please avoid this route until conditions change.

NM-404 from Anthony, NM to Chaparral, NM is closed due to heavy snow and low visibility. Please seek an alternate route.
NM-152 is CLOSED due to winter weather conditions as roadways are snow packed and icy.

NM159, NM-52 and NM-174 have been closed due to the flood, and will remain closed until conditions change.
I-10 Arizona to Texas State line:
I-10 corridor is reporting high winds, with snow and rain. Roadways are icy in various areas which will make driving conditions very difficult as black icy will form at the bridge overpasses.
I-25 from Socorro to Las Cruces is reporting snow and rain, with black icy throughout the interstate and on the bridge overpasses.
Additional routes include: US-70, US-60 and US-180 with snow flurries and slick roadways. Motorists are advised to proceed with caution throughout the weekend as the storm moves through New Mexico.

We ran out of time to get the upgrade completed, but it should get finished on the 4th of July. We made great progress, but the sheer number of articles (more than 31,000 have been posted and archived since 2012!!!) and the number of website components made it difficult to complete. Thanks for your patience. And you still have the updated visuals of the site to look forward to.

The Beat totally appreciates its readers!  Thanks for having patience during these busy days of spring!
