UPDATE 3:40 p.m.
Indian Canyon has been reopened
Both Gene Autry Trail was reopened to traffic Monday morning, but Indian Canyon Drive remained closed through its Whitewater wash crossing between Interstate 10 and the city of Palm Springs Monday morning.
Police shut the roads down yesterday due to low visibility and drifting sand that was piling up on both roadways blocking traffic lanes.
There was no immediate word on when the roads would be cleared and reopened.
Alternate routes include Vista Chino and Highway 111, but motorists should prepare for delays and expect more traffic as they make their way around the area.
