* '''Interstate 10''' (I-10) runs east to west across southern Arizona and connects travelers with the major cities of [[Tucson]] and [[Phoenix]]. I-10 originates out of the east from [[Las Cruces]], [[New Mexico]] and out of the west, from [[Palm Springs]], [[California]] and [[Los Angeles]]. I-10 is a major interstate and does carry a large amount of car and truck traffic. During the week, portions of I-10 can experience very heavy traffic, usually around the Tucson and Phoenix metropolitan areas.

The northern drive from [[Phoenix]] to [[Flagstaff]] (through tortuous but BEAUTIFUL terrain) is the fastest route between the two cities.

* '''Interstate 8''' (I-8) runs east to west, running from I-10 to [[Yuma]]. I-8 splits from I-10 south of Phoenix and provides the quickest access to Yuma as well as [[San Diego]], [[California]]. However, in the other direction, it does not go to Phoenix directly. At Gila Bend, Hwy 85 connects I-8 with I-10, for travel to the west side of Phoenix and downtown (or Phoenix to San Diego). For the eastern suburbs, I-8 merges with I-10, and it's possible to reverse direction going from I-8 east to I-10 west (exit #178B) or vice versa (I-10 exit #199). Despite the signs, I-10 goes mostly north-south east of Phoenix, and backtracking is very minimal.
