The Associated Press


CHANDLER, Ariz. — Part of Interstate 10 is closed in the Phoenix area, affecting motorists heading from Phoenix to Tucson.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says eastbound I-10 is closed at the Loop 202 Santan Freeway because of an accident Wednesday morning.

Traffic is getting by on the left shoulder bu there's a backup resulting in long delays for motorists.

ADOT is advising motorists to use alternative routes.

Those could include exiting I-10 and using US 60 and the Loop 101 and 202 freeways to reach State Route 87 to take it south to reconnect with I-10.

There is no estimate on when I-10's eastbound lanes will reopen.
