If you take I-8 from Eloy over to the El Centro area and take CA-86 up to Indio you won't add that much mileage to your trip. It gives you a little different view of things as well.
The bridge that is out is just east of Desert Center. Yes it's open to one lane each direction now but I don't have any idea what the backup might be.
I just came out to Cali from Arizona but I went via Las Vegas. WAY out of the way but a much funner trip.

I paid $2.25 this morning. Don't know about California, I stay out of there. Gas is too expensive.

best last chance to fill up in az is the Texaco on 10 about 5 miles east of Ehrenburg... especially diesel....stay away from pilot and flying j ... not a good deal anymore since FJ bought pilot.

If you want to miss the Phoenix traffic you can take exit 199 (approx 55 - 60 mi from tuscon) to I-8 towards San Diego for 65 mi to 85 north. This brings you back to I-10 at Buckeye. I don't beleive it's any faster but it avoids Phoenix and the traffic frustration.

Well I paid $3.059 yesterday and that was the cheapest brand name gas around here.

I 8 Trip

Well we took the I 8 route and wish we hadnt. Traffic I on I 8 was good but the roads were bad. Got worse after El Centro. Plus our genie gave us trouble. We'll try 10 on our return trip. Thanks all for the advice and support.

I took the I-10 to california from Arizona a couple weeks ago, the traffic slowed to one lane and went 45 over the bridge, it was no big deal. Maybe I was lucky but i went both ways in a couple days and no issues. I found it goes pretty good and I would not be concerned if i was going again.
