Slurry Seal & Crack Seal Road Improvement Project
More than two million square feet of roadway or roughly 30 lane miles will be slurry sealed throughout the City of Indio. Minor cracks will be sealed to prevent moisture from penetrating the roadway structural section as part of the city’s preventative maintenance program and save on more expensive repairs in the future. Crack sealing began on Monday, September 24, 2018, and the slurry and grind/overlay projects in 27 neighborhoods and street segments will be in full swing from the beginning of November 2018 through the end of January 2019. Additional work will take place in Spring 2019. This $1.6 million project is funded by Measure X. The following streets will receive slurry sealing:
Highway 111 between Jefferson Street and Madison Street
Calhoun Street between Highway 111 and Avenue 48
Avenue 44 between Golf Center Parkway and Harrison Street
Bella Terra Community (off of Golf Center Parkway)
Villa Estates Community (off of Golf Center Parkway and Avenue 43)
Avenue 43 between 24 Hour Fitness and Terra Lago
Calhoun Street between Avenue 42 and Avenue 43
Golf Center Parkway between Avenue 42 and Avenue 45
Avenue 42 between Monroe Street and Jackson Street

The Highway 111 roadway improvement project between west of Madison Street and Rubidoux Street continues and will be completed by December 2018.

During construction, certain traffic lanes in each direction will remain open at all times to provide access to businesses. Construction is being performed in segments to minimize traffic impacts. However, there may be times driveways and side streets may be closed, or utility or traffic signal work will be performed so please adhere to traffic signs and notices. The Highway 111 Street Improvement Project in Indio will increase safety for drivers and pedestrians, improve access to local businesses, prepare for future economic development projects, and accommodate future traffic with thousands of people visiting and moving to Indio every year as the largest and fastest growing city in eastern Riverside County.
