Freeway East Of Coachella Closed

Interstate 10 east of Coachella has been closed.

According to the California Highway Patrol , heavy rains washed out a bridge in the eastbound lanes of the freeway and undermined a bridge in the westbound lanes. The major east-west artery is closed in both directions. According to the CHP , about 30 feet of the roadway has been washed away and the eastbound bridge is totally gone while the westbound bridge has been undermined by the heavy rains and will remain closed until Caltrans engineers inspect the site. The closure is near State Route 117 in the Desert Center area.
