Authorities Monday urged motorists to avoid a 1.5-mile stretch of Varner Road near Bermuda Dunes during the daytime hours on Friday due to work planned for the area.
Caltrans and Riverside County Transportation Department crews are set to combine forces to remove sand from the unincorporated thoroughfare between Avenue 38 and Badger Street.
The work is scheduled between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Motorists were encouraged to use nearby roads instead to avoid delays.
