Indian Canyon is being converted to a two-way street in Palm Springs. Drivers can expect some changes and overnight closures this week.
This has been an ongoing project since May of 2019, but a good portion of the conversion is happening this week. Work to a different section of Indian Canyon will be done each night starting at 8:00 p.m. and reopen the following morning.
Sunday night, crews worked to convert the section between Alejo and Amado road. Monday night they’ll continue: Amado to Tahquitz will be converted, followed by Tahquitz to Arenas on Tuesday night. Arenas to Ramon will be completed Wednesday overnight and then lastly, Ramon to Camino Parocela should be completed by Friday morning, unless there are any unforeseen delays.
The city also says there will be parking on both sides of the streets. That means many of the parking signs on the west side are going to be flipped so that they face southbound traffic now.
The project also includes new traffic signals for the revised traffic pattern and upgrades to the signals between Alejo Road and Tachevah Drive to improve the flow of traffic. The sidewalks are also going to be extended out to improve safety for pedestrians.
All drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are advised to look both ways on Indian Canyon now, as traffic will be coming from both directions.
