California collapse of freeway bridge on Interstate 10 affected Phoenix and Los Angeles for weeks


But the Interstate 10  closure will also affect cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles, which are directly linked by the busy artery that carries about 27,000 vehicles daily. One driver had to be rescued Sunday from a pickup that crashed in the collapse and was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.When inspectors visited the bridge in March, they found no structural issues, excepting some mirror cracks. Water rushing through a normally dry desert gully eroded the land around the bridge, causing one side of the eastbound span to collapse and forcing the closure of the westbound span. It will take weeks to reopen, the experts estimated.
