I-10 Blythe Pavement Rehabilitation

  • Riverside County, California
  • DISTRICT 8 RIV-10 PM R134.0 to R156.5
  • PN 0816000090/EA 08-1C083

Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans or Department) proposes to rehabilitate pavement on Interstate 10 (I-10) within the project area while improving safety and mobility for the traveling public between post mile (PM) R134.0 and R156.5 in Riverside County, California. A temporary detour route will also be constructed to maintain two-way traffic through the project corridor during construction. The total project area is approximately 745 acres.

Project Need

As indicated in Caltrans’ 2013 annual Pavement Condition Survey (PCS), pavement within the project limits exhibits distress, cracking, rutting, and bleeding and is beyond normal maintenance repair and treatment, resulting in poor ride quality from heavy and continuous traffic. The project would address the current and future deficiencies of the existing pavement within the project limits.
