I-10 Bridge Outage Near Blythe CA

Has anyone traveled the section of I-10 where the bridge washed out in July? We were thinking of staying on I-10 til east of L.A. then catch I-5 north.

However, now we're thinking about taking I-8 out of Tucson til around El Centro, then go north towards Indio, which is where we were planning on staying the night and then on towards L.A.

I-10 bridge

Go to AZ511.gov. For some reason this address won't let me put the www at the beginning of the web address. They have information there that will help. They also have a phone number there.

I believe the have moved traffic to the side that did not wash out and reduced both directions to one lane. That what the folks on the local news said.

Good luck,

Jim

The I-10 Work reported above is about 20 miles east of Tucson. Road is down to one lane until December.

Your plan for I-8 to El Centro isn't a bad idea. Just the traffic and the mess of getting through Phoenix is worth it. After Casa Grande I-8 is uncrowded, picks up a little bit between Yuma and El Centro.

Make sure you fill up your gas tanks before entering Calif

I-10 bridge

There is a pilot station just before the California border. South side of the freeway.

Last time I was in Arizona (June) there was only a 3 cent difference in gas price from California.

Okay, that sounds wrong in so many ways. If you're going north from Los Angeles I guess we need to know where in order to give you advice but going south to highway 8 from the 10 sounds like a waste of a hundred miles. I haven't heard what they did with that road repair but that they had one lane open at least and no matter how badly it slows down its got to be better than heading to the to the 8th and coming back up to Blythe California. From Blythe you still have to take the 10. If you're going points north from Los Angeles, I would think twice about going into town and then taking the 5 north especially with an RV since there are sections of that road that must be among the worst in California. If you're going north of Bakersfield and have towing capacity for a moderate grade. You can swing north to the 40, Barstow then 58 west through the Tehachapi Pass and hit the 5 that way. All depends on how much you want to avoid the 10 and how eager you are to go into Los Angeles
