Nighttime road work and associated lane and ramp closures will begin Sunday evening along Interstate 10 between Beaumont and the Coachella Valley, the California Department of Transportation announced.

Crews have been gradually making improvements to nearly 20 miles of freeway between Beaumont and Highway 111 near Palm Springs as part of the I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, also called the I-10 Tune-Up, for more than a year and a half.

Alternating lane and ramp closures will continue Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day westbound along the entire length of the project and eastbound between Beaumont and Banning.

The eastbound 22nd Street on-ramp that was closed Jan. 13 is set to reopen on Jan. 24. Caltrans recommends the use of Eighth Street as an alternative.

The westbound Main Street on- and off-ramps that closed on Jan. 19 are scheduled to reopen on Jan. 29. Caltrans recommends the use of Morongo Trial as a detour.

The eastbound Eighth Street off-ramp that closed on Jan. 20 is scheduled to reopen Jan. 30. Caltrans recommends the use of 22nd Street as a detour.

The eastbound Eighth Street on-ramp is scheduled to close on Jan. 24 and reopen Feb. 4. Caltrans recommends 22nd Street as a detour.

No weekday lane closures are planned during daytime hours, though crews will continue working during the day at various points along the thoroughfare.

The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guardrails, repaving outside lanes and replacing slabs in inside lanes and upgrading various on- and off-ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
