Nighttime Lane, Ramp Closures Continue This Week for I-10 Tune-Up Project

City News Service

Nighttime road work and associated lane and ramp closures will continue this week along Interstate 10 between Beaumont and the Coachella Valley.

Crews have been gradually making improvements to nearly 20 miles of freeway between Beaumont and Highway 111 near Palm Springs as part of the I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, also called the I-10 Tune-Up, for more than a year and a half.

Alternating lane and ramp closures that started Sunday will continue through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. each day westbound along the entire length of the project and eastbound between Beaumont and Banning.

The westbound Hargrave Street off-ramp in Banning will remain closed through Aug. 25.

The eastbound Morongo Trail on- and off-ramps will remain closed until Thursday.

No weekday lane closures are planned during daytime hours, though crews will continue working during the day at various points along the thoroughfare this week.

The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guard rails, repaving outside lanes and replacing slabs in inside lanes and upgrading various on- and off- ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The $210 million project is primarily funded by the state gas tax, and the remainder through federal funds as well as some funding from the state, according to Caltrans.

Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022.

Caltrans has set up a website for project-specific updates at www.i10tuneup.com.
