I-10 Work Continues In The Pass

Interstate 10 is scheduled to drop down to one lane in each direction between Beaumont and Cabazon for overnight road work again during the week of July 12th, 2020.

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 Sunday night July 12th and continue through Friday, July 17th.  Crews are set to close between two and three lanes in both directions at staggered intervals between Pennsylvania Avenue in Beaumont and Main Street in Cabazon to 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.

On Monday, July 13th, crews will resume work on the center median between Eighth Street in Banning and Main Street in Cabazon.  That work will be conducted from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily throughout the 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 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.

It’ll wrap up in 2022.
