Interstate 10 is scheduled to drop down to one lane in each direction between Beaumont and Cabazon for overnight road work starting Monday evening, and continuing through the end of the week.
The I-10 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, also called 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.
Crews are set to close between two and three lanes in both directions on the eight-lane artery at staggered intervals between Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont and Main Street in Cabazon. Work is scheduled through Saturday morning as crews excavate segments of the roadway and do other work between 7 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. daily.
According to Caltrans, two lanes in each direction will be open until 11 p.m., then reduced to one lane overnight.
Crews on Monday also restarted work in the center median between Eighth Street in Banning and Main Street in Cabazon. Work will be conducted 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through Friday.
No daytime lane or ramp closures are planned, according to Caltrans.
The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guardrails, repaving outside lanes, replacing slabs in the inside lanes and upgrading various on- and off-ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The $210 million project is primarily funded by the state gas tax, and the remainder through federal funds as well as some funding from the state, according to Caltrans.
