The Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) and elected officials kicked off the next phase of CV Link construction by officially breaking ground at the new Promontory Point access point on March 29, 2021. This access point includes the construction of a bridge to connect the Cities of La Quinta and Indio.
CV Link is a multi-modal pathway that can accommodate pedestrians, cyclists and low-speed electric vehicles such as golf carts. CV Link will ultimately span more than 40 miles across the Coachella Valley. In October, CVAG authorized contracts worth $52.733 million to fund this stage of construction, which includes approximately 13.5 miles in the Cities of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indio and Coachella as well as unincorporated Riverside County. The authorization which allows the CVAG Executive Director to add almost 3.5 additional miles as right-of-way is now finalized.
An estimated 3.5 miles of CV Link is nearing completion in the City of Palm Desert, which is being constructed under a cooperative agreement with the City and CVAG. Another 3.5 miles of the project are completed and open for use in the Cities of Cathedral City and Palm Springs.
