Traveling on Interstate 10 this week will get very tricky as road crews move from constructing overpasses overhead to roadwork on the freeway itself.
Starting Monday night in Cathedral City, three lanes on the eastbound side of the freeway will be shut down from Date Palm Drive to Monterey Avenue from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. This will give crews time to set up support structures for the new Bob Hope Drive overpass.
Road crews will conduct the same lane closures through Thursday.
One lane will stay open for traffic, but backups are expected.
Meantime, road crews will also be working on the new overpass to be built in Palm Springs at Indian Canyon starting Monday night.
They will be restriping the freeway and the ramps, as well as building a support structure to protect workers for the upcoming overpass work.
Two lanes of the interstate will be shut down around the Indian Canyon area from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday through Thursday.
A complete shut down of Interstate 10 will happen next Monday, September 20, as road crews work on the actual overpass.
Motorists will exit the interstate at Ramon and drive through Cathedral City to get back on Date Palm.
Those closures will also be scheduled overnight, and will last for two weeks.
