Tucson, AZ (June 21, 2019) – An early morning auto accident on Thursday, June 20th, closed two lanes of traffic on I-10 westbound at Congress Street.
The crash happened around 9:00 a.m. and caused the traffic backup to extend to I-19. Cleanup continued for several hours on the left shoulder, according to the Arizona of Department of Transportation, which resulted in continued traffic delays throughout the morning. However, the two left lanes blocked by the auto accident reopened around 10:00 a.m.
