Delays likely on Interstate 10 in Benson, Tucson overnight Saturday, January 13 have been announced by the Cochise County Sheriff.
Drivers on Interstate 10 between Benson and Tucson could experience delays this weekend as the Arizona Department of Transportation works to accommodate large-capacity, oversized loads.
