News from the City of Indio
Indio, CA: Major road improvements will take place on the northwest corner of Indio Boulevard and Avenue 48 from Monday, October 14 to Thursday, November 7, 2019 in preparation for the construction of a new Tower Market gasoline station and convenience store. The work involves grinding the top surface of the street and overlaying it with new asphalt; and removal and reconstruction of various concrete curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and driveways. Roadway striping will be installed after all pavement work is complete. Work will occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Work will start on Indio Boulevard and then move to Avenue 48. The traffic signals at Indio Boulevard and Avenue 48, and at Dillon Road and Avenue 48 will be on flashing red for public safety starting October 21, 2019. Access will be maintained to all private and public facilities within the work limits, with lane closures and traffic control, during the duration of the project. Residents and motorists should expect travel delays, are urged to use alternate routes, and should observe all construction signs and obey road crews. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected.
The work is part of the project to develop a vacant 3.07-acre site with a 5,199 square-foot Tower Market gasoline station and convenience store and two 3,500 square-foot pads for future restaurants. The developer, Tower Energy Group, is funding the entire cost of the road improvements, which will extend the service life of the street pavement, minimize further deterioration, and improve the safety and access for motorists and pedestrians.
