PHOENIX -- State Route 347 was reopened Thursday after being closed by multiple crashes, the Arizona Department of Transportation said.
The 14-mile stretch of State Route 347 was closed after blowing dust caused the collisions.
The highway was closed from Interstate 10 to Casa Blanca Road, north of the town of Maricopa. The eastbound I-10 off-ramps to Riggs Road and SR 347 were also closed.
To avoid the closure, drivers were told to continue on I-10 and exit at Casa Blanca Road to meet up with SR 347.
