Concrete rehabilitation work is underway on Cook Street between Frank Sinatra Drive and Merle Drive in Palm Desert.

It started on Wednesday, August 24th 2022 and will continue through November 2022.

The work includes repairing sidewalks, curbs and gutters, median islands, and cross gutters is being done between Frank Sinatra Drive and to Merle Street.

Watch for periodic lane closures to both the northbound and southbound lanes of Cook Street as the work progresses in phases.

Delays are possible, and motorists are encouraged to allow extra time or use alternate routes.


Road repairs to Highway 111 in downtown Indio continue into early 2023.

The improvement project includes sidewalk upgrades, landscaped medians and other work along the main corridor leading to the Riverside County Fairgrounds.

The work on Highway 111, from Arabia Street to Smurr Street, is the second phase of a $5.5 million endeavor managed by Riverside County to renovate the area following construction of the nearby John J. Benoit Detention Center. The work will match recent City of Indio improvements along Highway 111 that have made for smoother travel in the city.

During the project, Highway 111 in the construction area is expected to have one lane open in each direction. The repairs are scheduled for completion in early 2023.
