I-15, I-86 closed due to high winds and dust storms

IDAHO FALLS — The Idaho Transportation Department closed sections of Interstate 15 and Interstate 86 Wednesday due to high winds, which have caused dust storms.
I-15 is closed between Idaho Falls and Roberts, and I-86 is closed from Arbon Valley to American Falls.
The dust storms have caused low visibility on the highways, and officials advise locals to drive carefully.
Most of eastern Idaho has an active high wind warning or wind advisory, which has resulted in sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph and gusts of up to 55 mph.
It’s not clear when the roads will reopen. The winds are expected to decrease at around 10 p.m. Wednesday.
