Interstate 10 eastbound at State Route 85, roughly 30 miles from downtown Phoenix, is closed due to a serious car accident, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
The accident happened late Friday morning, said ADOT.
Drivers traveling eastbound are being detoured onto southbound SR-85.
Drivers wanting to reach the Phoenix area should exit SR-85 at Broadway Road or Maricopa County 85 to go eastbound, then use streets such as Miller Road or Airport Road/Verrado Way to return to Interstate 10.
Drivers who intend to go past Phoenix can get back on I-10 by continuing south on SR-85 then taking Interstate 8 eastbound. I-8 connects with I-10 near Casa Grande.
There is no estimated time as to when I-10 eastbound will reopen, according to ADOT.
Westbound traffic is not being affected.
