Interstate 10 Traffic Plan
INTERSTATE 10 - Riverside County supervisors unanimously agreed to put plans into action to ease major traffic jams on Interstate 10, between Banning and Palm Springs.
Right now the nearly 19-mile stretch of the San Gorgonio Pass lacks detour routes that allow drivers to exit I-10 and continue in either direction in the case of a closure.
The 40-million dollar plan will extend roads, establish u-turn gaps and install electronic message signs. Several agencies including, the CHP and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians will collaborate on improvements.
Work may begin in 18 months.
