Multiple closures will affect a major Palm Desert thoroughfare starting Tuesday.

The number-one lane on Monterey Avenue will be closed in both directions from about 1,000 feet south of Frank Sinatra Drive to about 325 feet north of the drive for repaving work, city officials said.

The closure will continue around the clock through 6 p.m. on Sept. 18.

The northbound number-three lane on Monterey between Fred Waring and Magnesia Falls drives also shut down beginning at 7 a.m. Tuesday, and will continue to be closed until 7 p.m. Sept. 25 to allow the start of construction on CV Link, a byway for alternative transportation.

College of the Desert will remain accessible via Fred Waring Drive, college officials said.

Motorists were urged to avoid Monterey and use alternate routes such as Bob Hope Drive and Portola Avenue.
