Motorists traveling on Interstate 10 between Beaumont and Cabazon in either direction next week could experience delays due to nighttime construction-related lane and ramp closures, Caltrans announced Friday.
Crews are scheduled to close two of the four eastbound lanes between Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont and Main Street in Cabazon from 7 p.m.-6:30 a.m. from Sunday to Thursday to excavate segments of roadway.
During the same hours from Tuesday to Thursday, two westbound lanes will also be closed from Eighth Street in Banning to Main Street in Cabazon while crews do grinding work.
The eastbound 22nd Street on-ramp in Banning will also be closed during those hours for paving.
Crews on Monday are scheduled to restart work in the center median between Eighth Street in Banning and Main Street in Cabazon. The work is scheduled from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily until Thursday.
Other than the median work, no daytime lane or ramp closures are scheduled, according to Caltrans.
The I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, dubbed 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 lanes Nos. 3 and 4, replacing slabs in lanes Nos. 1 and 2 and upgrading various on-ramps and off-ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The $210 million project is predominately funded by the 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 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.
