    I-10 around the Benson area is closed in both directions for wildfires. No good detour either... I suppose if you had a "hot" load, running highway 90 down to Douglas may be an option but thats one hell of a detour...

    Down to Tombstone and over to Elfrifa and up may be the best bet if you are in a hurry.

    I can only imagine the traffic down there right now. All eastbound traffic is gonna have to route to i40 or take us60 out of phx to safford and whatever that highway is that goes to nm out of lordsberg area... Or go south like u said....What a mess...

    I'm headed east. Gonna wait it out for now in Tucson, having to reroute up to 40 would be a disaster.

    I didn’t think there was anything that could burn down there.

    The fire was still burning a little this morning about 50 to 100 yards west of the rest area at mm320. I-10 was open though.
