PHOENIX (AP) - Truckers are traveling farther to transport commercial loads following the collapse of a bridge on Interstate 10, a change that could impact prices.

KPHO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Jvmj4i) detours are taking commercial truckers driving between Phoenix and Los Angeles three and four hours out of their way to avoid the collapsed Tex Wash Bridge.

Arizona Trucking Association president and CEO Tony Bradley says thousands of trucks are now traveling roads not meant to handle the 24,000 vehicles that passed over the bridge up until Sunday.

Phoenix-based Stewart Transport owner Collin Stewart says delays and higher fuel costs could end up costing customers more on purchases ranging from medicine to furniture.
