The County of Riverside (County), in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the City of Indio, proposes to reconstruct and widen the Monroe Street interchange on the I-10 freeway to improve traffic flow.
Improvements include reconstructing and widening the freeway on- and off-ramps at the I-10/Monroe Street Interchange and replacing the Monroe Street overcrossings of I-10 and the Coachella Valley Stormwater Channel on Whitewater River to accommodate additional through lanes, turn lanes, and CV Link http://www.coachellavalleylink.com/. CV Link is a multi-modal active transportation pathway which accommodates pedestrians, bicyclists, and low-speed electric vehicles (LSEVs)—including golf carts. The proposed project will reduce traffic congestion, while improving mobility, traffic operations, and safety on Monroe Street at the I-10 freeway.
The project is currently in the Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA/ED) phase and two project alternatives are under study for recommendation and approval. The project study alternatives are illustrated below:
A Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) would reduce conflict points and improve traffic flow by eliminating left- and right-turn movements at the intersections, constructing additional traffic lanes, improving existing geometry, and adding new mobility elements.
