Highway 111 and Jefferson Street intersection pavement rehabilitation project to begin in December

INDIO – An $899,300 construction project will reconstruct the Highway 111 and Jefferson Street intersection pavement from Dec. 11 to Dec. 23.

The intersection carries high traffic volume during the day, so work will occur at night between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday through Friday, to minimize traffic impacts.

Residents and motorists should expect significant travel delays, as traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. The Intersection of Highway 111 and Jefferson Street will be on red flash. In addition, road signs will be in place, and flaggers will assist with bike/vehicle traffic and pedestrian activity. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes. The public’s cooperation and observance of all construction signs will also be greatly appreciated to ensure the safety of both drivers and construction crews. Access to emergency vehicles will be unaffected.

The residents in the project’s vicinity should be expected to hear noise and possible vibrations (shaking) from construction activities. Construction equipment used for this project will be equipped with backup alarms (beeping). These alarms are required by state law. The city will coordinate to keep the equipment backing up to a minimum; however, some beeping is expected.

This is a joint project between the cities of Indio and La Quinta. The project is part of the City’s street maintenance program to restore the appearance of the street pavement while extending its service life and minimizing further deterioration. The work involves:

  • Removal of existing deteriorated asphalt and base.
  • Construction of new asphalt pavement.
  • Reconstruction of pedestrian ramps.
  • Striping the new asphalt surface.

The project is funded by Measure A. Measure A generates funds for transportation infrastructure in Riverside County through a half-cent sales tax.
