Lane and ramp closures are set for Interstate 10 between Beaumont and Cabazon next week for overnight road work, which is expected to drop the roadway down to one lane in each direction at times, Caltrans announced Thursday.
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.
Work is scheduled to begin again Monday and continue through the following Friday morning. 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 to pour concrete and re-stripe segments of the roadway 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.
The eastbound Main Street on- and off-ramps are also scheduled to close at various times at night for drainage work, Caltrans said.
Crews on Monday are also scheduled to restart work in the center median between Eighth Street in Banning and Main in Cabazon. Work will be conducted 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily throughout that work week.
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 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.
