Motorists urged to avoid I-35 in Moore

Posted: Updated:

MOORE, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma transportation officials say heavy traffic on Interstate 35 through Moore is hindering the tornado recovery effort.

The Transportation Department on Thursday asked motorists to avoid the area. The I-35 off-ramps in Moore are still restricted. The only people allowed to travel into Moore are residents and emergency responders.

Also, Oklahoma City police say Western Avenue between SW 164th and SW 134th is closed to all traffic. The closure will continue until utility crews finish installing new power lines.
