Roadwork to take place from Tuesday, Nov. 3 to Friday, Dec. 18
INDIO — The city of Indio next week will begin a $1.1 million roadwork project for which Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 is paying.
SB 1 generates funds for the transportation infrastructure through gasoline taxes and annual vehicle fees. Funding in SB 1 is split equally between state and local governments for highway and local road repair and maintenance. The City was able to secure $320,000 in funding through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program to cover the cost of the road improvements on Ave. 44.
The City of Indio will apply new slurry and striping on roads throughout the city from Tuesday, Nov. 3 to Friday, Dec. 18, 2020. Work will occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Residents and motorists should expect travel delays, are urged to use alternate routes, and should observe all construction signs and obey road crews. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected.
The roadwork 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 a slurry seal application to the asphalt surface, as well as striping the new asphalt surface.
The project includes the following streets:
- Fred Waring Dr (Hoover St. to Monroe St.)
- Monroe St. (Fred Waring Dr. to Hwy. 111)
- Monroe St. (John Nobles to Ave. 48)
- Jackson St. (Ave. 50 to Ave. 52)
- Jackson St. (I-10 to Ave. 42)
- Ave 38 (Dune Palms Rd. to Madison St.)
- Dune Palms Rd. (Ave. 38 to Ave. 37)
- Ave 37 (Dunes Palms Rd. to end of road)
- Ave 44 (Monroe St. to 500 feet east of Palo Verde St.)
Residents and businesses in roadwork areas will receive notice with detailed instructions for the scheduled pavement work. “NO PARKING” signs will be posted 72 hours in advance of scheduled work. Although there will be no street parking, parking will be available a reasonable distance away.
