MOORE, Oklahoma -

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.

The following streets are closed in all directions for power line repair:

  • Santa Fe between S.W. 134th & S.W. 149th
  • S.W. 148th between Santa Fe & May
  • Pennsylvania between S.W. 164th & S.W. 134th
  • Western Avenue between S.W. 164th and S.W. 134th

The closures will continue until utility crews finish installing new power lines.
