PHOENIX – Drivers heading to Southern California through Yuma should plan for delays on Interstate 8 with California Department of Transportation repairs closing one of two westbound lanes over the Colorado River.

According to Caltrans, the right westbound lane closure on the bridge, located on the state line near downtown Yuma, will remain in place until repairs are completed in January.
