Nighttime road work and associated lane and ramp closures will continue next week along Interstate 10 between Beaumont and the Coachella Valley, Caltrans announced Friday.

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 about two years.

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 Main Street off-ramp is scheduled to close Monday and will reopen on April 8. Caltrans recommends the use of Morongo Trail as a detour.

The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guard rails, 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.
