If you need a watermelon, good news: There are a ton of watermelons all over the place inside the I-10 westbound tunnel.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says one lane was open, but they've actually closed off I-10 at Seventh Street (at the time of this post.) Traffic was already backed up to 32nd Street when it was closed.
UPDATE 2:50 p.m.: Upon further inspection, ADOT has upgraded this situation from just watermelon, to full-blown fruit salad.
