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

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.
