DESERT CENTER, Calif. (AP) Highway workers cleared a second lane for travel on the main highway from Los Angeles east to Phoenix after repairing damage from monsoon flooding during the last August week.
The second lane has been restored on Interstate 10 near Desert Center, the California Department of Transportation announced on social media.
On August 24, monsoon thunderstorms triggered flooding that damaged eastbound lanes that served as a detour past an ongoing construction site.
Eastbound traffic was completely blocked until Caltrans was able to open a lane the next morning, but warned of major delays.
