CLAYTON, N.M. (KFDA) -

Wet and icy conditions have closed or delayed traffic in sections of major highways.

In Oldham County, TxDOT crews plowed snow off of sections on Interstate 40 near the New Mexico line. Officials are advising against east-and-westbound travel until 6 p.m.

A long stretch of road on US-64 near Clayton remains closed late Tuesday afternoon. New Mexico officials cite blowing snow and ice-packed areas as reasons for the closure.

There is no timetable available for the highway's reopening.
