Overnight lane closures are scheduled next week on Interstate 10 in the Banning Pass, where rehabilitation work on the eight-lane artery is continuing, Caltrans officials said Friday.
The “I-10 Tune-Up” is entering its fifth month, and crews have been gradually making improvements on the interstate corridor between Beaumont and state Route 111 north of Palm Springs.
Between Monday and Friday, crews are slated to resume excavation of roadway segments, install cable rails and make electrical improvements, according to Caltrans. Grinding and paving will be part of the operation.
Beginning about 7 p.m. Monday, workers will be making alterations on both the east- and westbound sides of the freeway between Main Street in Cabazon and Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont, officials said.
The work is slated to run until about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, and two to three lanes on both sides of I-10 will be closed for the duration.
At least one lane will be open for travel on both sides of the freeway, according to Caltrans.
Construction activities are also scheduled during the same hours Tuesday night to Wednesday morning, Wednesday night to Thursday morning, Thursday night to Friday morning, and Friday night to Saturday morning.
The $210 million tune-up, officially designated the “I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project,” is a three-phase makeover spanning nearly 20 miles and entails replacing guardrails, repaving the outside lanes, replacing slabs in the inside lanes and upgrading various on- and off-ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
