MULLAN, Idaho - I-90 in the area of the Idaho/Montana border has reopened after being shut down on Monday due to avalanche danger. 

On Monday several small avalanches blocked the westbound lanes near Lookout Pass, and the decision was made to close both the east and westbound lanes while experts assessed the possibility of more avalanches. On Tuesday at 3:00pm, the road reopened as the avalanche threat diminished. 

This was the first closure for an avalanche threat in the Lookout Pass area since January 27, 2008.
