Avenue 50 Closed as Festival Season Goes into High Gear

INDIO, CA (March 26, 2024) ­– As the City of Indio gears up for its vibrant festival season, preparations are in full swing, leading to the temporary closure of Avenue 50 between Monroe Street and Madison Avenue. The closure is effective from now through May 6.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to adjust commutes accordingly and recommended detours during the festival period include Highway 111, Dr. Carreon Boulevard, Avenue 48, and Avenue 52.

“The closure of Avenue 50 is essential to ensure the safety of workers, residents, and commuters alike,” said Jim Curtis, Community Services Manager. “By using the recommended alternative routes, we can work together towards another exciting year where we showcase the City of Indio and greater Coachella Valley to those visiting from around the world.”
