I-10 Bridge Collapse Raises Infrastructure Questions, Impacts Truckers

Transportation officials said the bridge on I-10 in California that collapsed on Sunday will reopen Friday — although only one lane in each direction.

The closure came after flooding and cut off the main route between Phoenix and Los Angeles.

It’s sparked conversations about the state of infrastructure in Arizona and the country.

For more on this, we turn to John Harvey, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California Davis and director of the UC Pavement Research Center.

The closure caused problems for a lot of travelers between Phoenix and LA — including truckers. We talked about the impact with Tony Bradley is President and CEO of the Arizona Trucking Association.
