Construction crews Monday began rehabbing several streets in Indio, a process that is expected to affect neighborhood street parking throughout the week.
The $426,000 project involves grinding the top surface of four battered roadways in town, which will be overlayed with a new coat of asphalt and striping. Work is expected to wrap up by 5 p.m. Friday, according to city officials.
The work is being done on:
— Hoover Street, from Monroe Street to Fred Warning Drive;
— Fred Waring Drive, from Monroe Street to Indio Boulevard;
— Park Avenue, from Miles Avenue to Bliss Avenue; and
— Shadow Palm Drive, between Aladdin and Monroe streets.
Residents and businesses in affected areas should have received instructions on how to navigate the work zones, according to city officials. Signs will be posted within areas in which street parking has been temporarily terminated.
Crews are scheduled to work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
The entire cost of the project is being funded by the state gas tax.
