    Anyone taking I-10 between the Indio Supercharger and Quartzsite Supercharger needs to be aware that a bridge was washed out by the rains today...

    Story from Time.com - Part of Interstate 10 Collapses After Heavy Rains in California

    or KTLA5 - Bridge Collapses Amid Heavy Rains Near Coachella, Prompting Closure of 10 Freeway | KTLA

    Here is the link to the Google Map from the KTLA story... https://www.google.com/maps/place/33%C2%B041'54.9%22N+115%C2%B028'10.1%22W/@33.705726,-115.8659598,10z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

    Travel safe out there...

    AED, I posted the same thing about 30 minutes ago; I did not see anything here when I posted (SORRY--did not mean to steal your thunder.) I posted a couple of work-arounds for those traveling between Arizona and California.

    Perhaps the moderators can merge these two stories. :)

    We're both just trying to help fellow forum readers. We'll let mods "do their thing".

    And to think I drove over that just 10 days ago...

    I wonder how long I-10 will be closed -- the bridge that failed was on the eastbound portion, and westbound is also closed. The westbound bridge was compromised in the flash flood...

    Quote: "...a Tesla technician to bring him a new battery."
    Obviously that is incorrect.
