Interstate 10 is scheduled to drop to one lane in each direction this week between Beaumont and Cabazon for road work at various times during the night.
Crews are set to close between two and three lanes in both directions at staggered intervals between Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont and Main Street in Cabazon. Work is scheduled Sunday through Thursday as crews excavate segments of the roadway and do other work between 7 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. daily.
According to Caltrans, two lanes in each direction will be open until 11 p.m. daily, then reduced to one lane overnight.
Crews on Monday are scheduled to restart work in the center median between Eighth Street in Banning and Main Street in Cabazon. Work will be conducted 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through Wednesday.
No daytime lane or ramp closures are planned, according to Caltrans.
The I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, also called the I-10 Tune-Up, is a three-phase construction project spanning nearly 20 miles from Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont to the Highway 111 interchange in Palm Springs. Work is scheduled to conclude by the end of 2022.
The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guardrails, repaving lane Nos. 3 and 4, replacing slabs in lane Nos. 1 and 2 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 a sliver of additional state funding, Caltrans said.
Temporary crossover lanes will be constructed at times to allow for crews to work behind barriers in the middle of the roadway, which will include thinner-than-traditional lane widths. The speed limit will be reduced to 60 mph.
