Why? I-10 pavement is in disrepair
The I-10 is a major east-west connector route transporting people and goods through California. The heavily travelled roadway is cracked and in disrepair. This project will restore structural integrity and ride quality in the project area, and minimize maintenance needs, therefore minimizing worker exposure.
The existing cracked and damaged concrete will be replaced during this major rehabilitation project on nearly 20 miles of I-10 from Beaumont to SR-111.
Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Nighttime work hours 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
Weekend work is permitted.
The I-10 TuneUp will
- Replace concrete slabs on lanes #1 and #2,
- Rehabilitate asphalt concrete on lanes #3 and #4,
- Rehabilitate asphalt on the on and off-ramps,
- Upgrade 4 ADA sidewalk ramps where the freeway ramps connect with streets.
Work will be completed in three segments
What to Expect
- Generally, all lanes will be open to maintain freeway capacity however, motorists are advised to plan for construction-related traffic delays.
- Note: The contractor may close lanes as needed.
- The crossover lane traffic pattern change, along with narrower, 11-foot-wide-lanes, will naturally cause motorists to reduce their speed.
- Travel speeds will be reduced to 60 MPH in the construction area.
- Project timeline extended to mid-2023.
To complete the concrete rehabilitation without reducing freeway capacity, crews will build a temporary “crossover lane” in the construction area. A crossover lane creates workspace by shifting one lane of traffic to the other side of the freeway using a temporary K-Rail lane that crosses the center median.
