If Covid-19 does not rule the day and we actually make it to the end of 2022, Interstate 10 will look like  new.

The ongoing I-10 Tune-up continues from the I-10 split with State Route 60 in Beaumont, to the Highway 111 exit in Palm Springs.

Motorists traveling on eastbound Interstate 10 the week of October 5th 2020 will be dealing with traffic delays during the nighttime hours between  Banning and Cabazon.

Crews have been gradually making improvements to nearly 20 miles of Interstate 10 between Palm Springs and Beaumont for the past 8 months.

The eastbound slow lane, and unspecified on- and off-ramps, are expected to shut down at night between Eighth Street in Banning and Main Street in Cabazon through Friday morning October 9th 2020.

Caltrans deployed a temporary crossover lane along  five miles of roadway between Banning and Cabazon on July 31 as part of the project.

The five-mile temporary lane was built to allow eastbound traffic to cross onto the opposing side of the roadway onto a separated lane from the others in order to avoid daytime lane closures associated with the project, according to Caltrans.

The I-10 Tune-Up includes replacing guardrails, repaving outside lanes, replacing slabs in 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.
