As Indian Canyon begins its transformation on Interstate 10, a headache is brewing down the road.
While crews construct the new overpass at Ramon Road/Bob Hope Drive, Interstate 10 will be closed from Ramon Road to Date Palm starting Wednesday night.
If you are heading west bound, Cal Trans said drivers will need to get off at Ramon Road; if you are east bound plan to get off at Date Palm Drive.
Eastbound detours are scheduled for September 8-11 from midnight to 6 a.m. Westbound lanes will be shut down from September 13-16 from midnight to 6 a.m.
The detours for the Ramon Road overpass will take drivers through Cathedral City, traveling through heavily commercial districts of Date Palm and Ramon Roads
The obstacles continue next week.
Drivers need to expect closures at the Indian Canyon Drive interchange on Interstate 10 on September 13 and 14 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. On both nights, the westbound exit ramp at Indian Canyon Drive will be closed to traffic. Traffic will be detoured to the Gene Autry Trail exit
Improvements planned for that interchange include the replacement of the current bridge over the freeway with a new six-lane over crossing and the addition of west and east-bound loop on-ramps.
Completion of the $16 million project is expected to take 2 years.
