Soon, residents will see their Measure X dollars hard at work! Caltrans has just approved Indio to go out to bid on its estimated $11.5 million long-awaited Highway 111 Street Improvement Project from Rubidoux Street to just west of Madison Street.
This project upgrading a nearly two-mile section of Highway 111 will include:
Funding for this estimated $11.5 million project is as follows:
$1.5 million City Measure X Funds
$1.0 million City Transportation Funds
$4.14 million Coachella Valley Association of Government (CVAG) Funds
$4.68 million Federal Transportation Grant Funds
TOTAL = $217,000 SB821 Grant Funds
The project is currently out to bid, with an award by City Council scheduled in October. Major construction is scheduled to begin right after the New Year, with completion expected by Thanksgiving of 2018. All work will be suspended during April for the music festivals.
Although work will be occurring on this project for most of 2018, construction will be done in sections to minimize the construction time in front of any one particular business.
Thank you for your patience as we improve Indio’s roadways!
