Public comment concludes for I-10/Monroe Street Interchange project

In order to keep the public updated about the Interstate 10/Monroe Street project, the Draft Initial Study/Environmental Assessment (IS/EA) was available for review and download, and a public outreach virtual hearing with CalTrans and the city of Indio was held June 9, 2020, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

You can view the entire presentation here.

The public review period ran from May 22- June 22, 2020.

Caltrans, the city of Indio, and Riverside County are considering three alternatives for the interchange, which were presented at the meeting.

“Alternative 1” is no change to the interchange, “Alternative 2” is a tight-diamond design, and “Alternative 4” is a diverging-diamond design.

The proposed changes include redesigning existing on- and off-ramps, the I-10/Monroe Street bridge overcrossing and the Coachella Valley Stormwater Channel bridge; adding an eastbound auxiliary lane between the Monroe Street and Jackson Street interchanges; adding acceleration and deceleration lanes at the westbound Monroe Street on- and off-ramps and a deceleration lane at the eastbound Monroe Street off-ramp.

The current estimated project cost is between $63-$65 million, and construction is scheduled to begin in late 2023.
