COACHELLA, Calif. – A stretch of Interstate 10 between Coachella and the Arizona border that was washed out by a flash flood last weekend reopened to traffic Friday afternoon.

Flooding destroyed part of a bridge carrying the eastbound lanes of the freeway over a normally dry wash on Sunday. Work crews hired by Caltrans worked all week to prepare the westbound lanes to carry two-way traffic. Friday afternoon, Caltrans tweeted a video showing traffic driving on the reopened stretch of freeway.

Work will now focus on repairing the eastbound bridge, but Caltrans has not said how long that will take.
