Eastbound Interstate 10 reopens in West Valley after serious crash



07/31/15 - The eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 have reopened at Loop 101 after a serious crash.

The Department of Public Safety said the serious-injury crash happened at 83rd Avenue early Friday morning. According to DPS, a woman driving a Dodge Charger rear ended a van.

The impact was so hard that the Charger slid more than 70 feet and landed on its roof.

The driver of the Dodge is in serious condition. The driver of the white van did not sustain major injuries. Officials believe alcohol and speed were a factor in the crash.

 A second serious crash happened overnight on westbound Interstate 10 at 35th Avenue. DPS said the crash happened on the exit ramp at 35th Avenue.

One person died in the crash. No other cars were involved. The cause of the crash is unknown.

 I-10 Arizona//California Bridge Situation:
Arizona drivers heading to California on Interstate 10 should find the road west of Blythe, Calif., open by noon Friday, but transportation officials recommend taking alternate routes if possible.
The eastbound side of the Tex Wash Bridge on I-10 west of Blythe washed out during an epic rainstorm Sunday, stranding hundreds of drivers and forcing lengthy detours throughout the week.
The road gets an estimated 27,000 drivers daily on average.
People leaving metro Phoenix after about 9 a.m. Friday should find the road open, while those leaving earlier will need to take detours in Quartzsite, Blythe or near the collapsed bridge in Desert Center.
“Everything is on schedule,” Caltrans spokeswoman Tyeisha Prunty said.
Granite Construction Inc., which received the emergency repair contract, brought dozens of workers and heavy equipment to the site this week to shore up the westbound bridge, which did not wash out but was threatened by the storm.
Crews also are cutting and paving two areas where eastbound I-10 travelers will merge into a single lane, cross the median and traverse the bridge normally only used for westbound traffic.
Westbound drivers will merge into a single lane before the bridge as well.
There will be no restrictions on types of vehicles allowed to use the crossovers, Prunty said.
Merging traffic in both directions is expected to create delays, so Caltrans recommends alternate routes if possible, Prunty said.
Drivers heading from Arizona to Los Angeles add about 40 miles to their trip by exiting the I-10 west of Blythe onto California 177 and traveling west on California 62, but they also trade 75 mph speed limits and two-lane interstate for smaller roads.


California I-10 bridge could have limited reopening in weeks, official says


07/21/15

A bridge collapse in Southern California forced the closure of Interstate 10 which is a main roadway between Southern California and Phoenix.

The collapse also moderately injured one person and stranded hundreds of motorists. The bridge on Interstate 10 that was washed out when a flash flood barreled down a Southern California desert gully could have a limited reopening within weeks.

While the eastbound span of the Interstate 10 bridge collapsed, the westbound span still stands — though severe erosion means it is not passable.

A spokesman for the California Department of Transportation said Monday that work crews plan to shore up the westbound span within several weeks.

Eastbound traffic could then use one of the bridge's two lanes, for now. Caltrans spokesman Will Shuck didn't have an exact time frame for the limited reopening, but said, "we're certainly not talking about months."

The bridge collapsed Sunday as remnants from a tropical storm dumped heavy rain on the desert about 50 miles west of the California-Arizona line.

The collapse left one driver injured, stranded numerous motorists and complicated travel for countless thousands for what officials earlier had warned could be a long time. The closure will force motorists seeking to use I-10 to travel between California and Arizona to go hundreds of miles out of their way to Interstate 8 to the south or Interstate 40 to the north.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says I-10 westbound is closed in western Arizona near Quartzsite at State Route 95.

ADOT says westbound I-10 drivers will be detoured to State Route 95. Drivers traveling to Southern California may take SR 95 south to Interstate 8 and then travel west to California.

California I-10 bridge collapse will impact Arizona travel


All traffic along a major freeway connecting California and Arizona was blocked indefinitely when a bridge over a desert wash collapsed during heavy rain, and the roadway in the opposite direction suffered severe damage, authorities said.

The collapse on Interstate 10 in southeastern California Sunday afternoon left one driver injured, stranded numerous motorists and complicated travel for countless thousands for what officials warned could be a long time.

"Interstate 10 is closed completely and indefinitely," said Terri Kasinga, spokeswoman for the California Department of Transportation. The closure will force motorists seeking to use I-10 to travel between California and Arizona to go hundreds of miles out of their way to Interstate 8 to the south or Interstate 40 to the north.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says I-10 westbound is closed in western Arizona near Quartzsite at State Route 95. ADOT says westbound I-10 drivers will be detoured to State Route 95.

Drivers traveling to Southern California may take SR 95 south to Interstate 8 and then travel west to California.

Motorists may also travel on SR 95 north to Parker, where drivers may cross into California using State Route 62 westbound. Further north, Interstate 40 is another route for travel between Arizona and California.
