Yep, lots of flash flood warnings for most of western San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

FYI

The Tex Wash bridge, built on the eastbound I-10 in 1967, was listed as functionally obsolete in the 2014 National Bridge Inventory. Essentially, the bridge was listed as no longer adequate for its task, though it was not listed as having known structural problems that needed to be fixed.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I've driven over that bridge. Frankly, all those "bridges" on that stretch of I-10 worry me. All they are is a thin slab of concrete with some skinny concrete posts holding them up. It's amazing they hold up even when it's not raining.


It looks like I'll be taking I-8 the next time I head out to North S.D. County.

My Grandson is playing in a baseball tournament in Goodyear this coming weekend. We will have to find another route to get there now.

Even through CalTrans has offered/shown detours you are much better off using Interstate 8 & 40. It appears they are fixing the washed out area on the Westbound bridge and maybe by Friday use it for one lane each way east and west.

Highway 62 through Yucca and 29 Palms parallels I-10 and it is a great road. After 29 Palms next services are 90 miles. We prefer it to the 10 to go to Quartzite, Us and a lot of others. There are one or two curves you need to slow down for, well marked, at least I do. I wouldn't do the I-8 route if you paid me. In fact I prefer it to the 10 period. See America be bold.

Talk about the scenic route! For me, that would be going way out of my way.

I've used both I-8 and I-10 to get to Escondido and there isn't much difference in distance between them. The time difference depends on what time of day I travel. I-10 has more convenient places for pit stops but, until that bridge is completely replaced, I'll be taking I-8.

I believe Escondido is south, way dough of the 10 so one might even expect the 10 to take longer but for those north of the 10 62 is a great choice.

From Tempe, AZ, Escondido is 11 miles farther by way of I-8 than by I-10. I often swing by Chino Hills on the way home so I-10 is more convenient then. I prefer I-10 because there are more nice places I can stop for pit stops.

UPDATE: I 10 Reopened!
"Rand McNally has made an update available reflecting the reopening of I-10 in Southern California. Officials are creating a crossover that will allow both directions of traffic to use the westbound side of the I-10 bridge.
To get the construction update on your GPS device, you must connect to the Rand McNally Dock. To update tablets, connect to Wi-Fi.
As a reminder, connect your GPS device to the Dock once a month to receive ongoing construction information provided by Rand McNally."
Thank you,
The Rand McNally Support Team
