UPDATE: Loose asphalt damaging cars along I-10, how to report claim

TUCSON- Drivers have been complaining about a stretch of road along I-10 where their windshields are getting damaged.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the problem with this stretch of road along I-10 between Ruthrauff and Miracle Mile is being caused by small pieces of deteriorating asphalt getting kicked up by car tires.

Drivers who have experienced damage to their windshield along this stretch have two ways to go about fixing it.

“For people who have glass insurance on their insurance policy where they have zero deductibles, they can file a claim with their own insurance company,” said Chaz Elsten, a Farmers Insurance Agent. “The way most replacements work is if they have a crack that is usually larger than a dollar bill if it is just chip repair it is usually still covered under people’s policy if they have comprehensive coverage.”

Elsten said that if drivers don’t have glass insurance, he recommends filing a claim with ADOT.

ADOT said scheduled repair work on the eastbound lanes of I-10 between Ruthrauff and Miracle Mile is planned for January 19th between 7pm and 5am.
