Interstate 10

In Arizona, Interstate 10 runs from the California border in Ehrenberg to the New Mexico border.

In Arizona, I-10 replaced many parts of US 60, US 80, AZ 84, AZ 85, and AZ 86. The last part of I-10 to be completed was the segment through Phoenix, which was finished in 1990.

Cool Features

Interstate 10 through Phoenix was very controversial during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. An original plan for I-10 that was proposed was an elevated freeway with giant helicoil interchanges at 3rd Ave and 3rd St to connect motorists to the freeway 100 feet in the air. This was voted down in 1973. You can view images of the interchange plans here.

The last segment of Interstate 10 to be completed nationwide was in Phoenix just north of Van Buren St on August 10, 1990.
