GALLUP, N.M. (KRQE) – I-40 westbound at Gallup reopened Thursday after cold and snowy weather closed the route into Arizona. The closure lasted more than 18 hours as Arizona State Troopers shutdown I-40 at Winslow, nearly 130 miles west of Gallup on Wednesday night.

As of Thursday evening, NMDOT’s road warnings map indicated the closure had been lifted. A look at Arizona Department of Transportation traffic cameras Thursday shows much of the snow has cleared from the roadway along I-40 between Kingman and Winslow, Arizona.

At 11:30 a.m. Thursday, ADOT tweeted about the reopening of I-40 through much of Arizona.
