Construction Work Will Enhance Safety and Access for the Community
INDIO, CA (May 14, 2018) – The Sun Gold Community Street Improvement Project in Indio begins May 14 and continues through August 7, 2018. The project will improve streets in the Sun Gold Community, which is bounded by Miles Avenue, Monroe Street, Indio Boulevard and Oasis Street. The work includes crack filling and slurry sealing existing asphalt pavement sections; and removal and reconstruction of various concrete curbs, gutters, and cross gutters. Existing utilities within the work limits will be protected in place, or adjusted, repaired, or replaced to match the newly finished grade. Roadway signing and striping will be installed after all pavement reconstruction and slurry sealing is complete. The first phase of the project starts on Miles Avenue from Monroe Street to Oasis Street. The construction work will improve safety and access to homes, Miles Avenue Park, the Coachella Valley History Museum, various businesses, and downtown Indio.
Access will be maintained to all private and public facilities within the work limits, with lane closures, traffic control, and restricted parking areas during the project. Notifications will be distributed by the contractor to affected residents and businesses. Parking along residential streets will have temporary (1-2 day) restrictions while the slurry material cures. Construction will be performed in segments to minimize traffic impacts. Please adhere to traffic signs and notices. This project will improve and prolong the life of the existing pavement. The $1.2 million project is funded primarily by the Community Development Block Grant Program and a portion of Measure X funds.
The Indio City Council has made it a priority to improve streets throughout the community as the largest and fastest growing city in eastern Riverside County. Road improvements are also occurring along Highway 111, Varner Road, and Avenue 42 to increase safety for drivers and pedestrians; improve access to local businesses and homes; prepare for future economic development projects; and accommodate future traffic with thousands of people visiting and moving to Indio every year. Last year, as part of our long standing partnership with Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG), the Jefferson Interchange and Jackson Street Traffic Signal and Intersection Improvement Project were completed. We thank CVAG for the continued support of regional infrastructure and transportation projects. In addition, we thank Valley Sanitary District (VSD) for funding and construction of the Valley Sanitary District Requa Sewer Project, also completed last year.
