Motorists traveling westbound at night on Interstate 10 between Beaumont and Cabazon may encounter additional inconveniences starting Monday due to lanes and ramps scheduled to close.
Two of the four westbound lanes are scheduled to be unaccessible from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. between Main Street in Cabazon and Eighth Street in Banning while crews install protective barriers through Friday, according to Caltrans.
At the same time, several ramps and lanes could close in the same direction from Main in Cabazon to Beaumont Avenue in Beaumont.
The work is a part of the I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, dubbed the I-10 Tune-Up, a three-phase, $210 million construction project spanning nearly 20 miles from Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont to the Highway 111 interchange in Palm Springs.
Work is scheduled to wrap up by the end of 2022.
Daytime work is also set to start again Monday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. between Cabazon and Banning until Friday while crews excavate portions of roadway. No closures are scheduled during that time.
The I-10 Tune-Up includes the replacement of guardrails, repaving lanes Nos. 3 and 4, replacing slabs in lanes Nos. 1 and 2 and upgrading various on- and off-ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The $210 million project is predominately funded by the so-called state “gas tax” and the remainder through federal funds, as well as a sliver of additional state funding, according to Caltrans.
Temporary crossover lanes will be constructed at times, which will include thinner-than-traditional lane widths. The speed limit will be reduced to 60 miles per hour.
