FLAGSTAFF — The Arizona Department of Transportation has closed eastbound and westbound Interstate 40 from the Meteor Crater Rest Area east of Flagstaff to Winslow due to high winds and blowing dust.

ADOT said the highway will remain closed until visibility improves. Drivers should plan on avoiding the area for the rest of the day.

Drivers can get the latest information about highway restrictions via ADOT's Travel Information site or by calling 5-1-1.
