REVISED - Work to close one lane and bike path on Avenue 52 and Washington Street in La Quinta

Construction

A Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) construction project in La Quinta will be closing one lane of traffic and the bike path on northbound Washington Street between Avenue 52 and Avenue 50 beginning October 25 and continuing through the end of November.

One lane of northbound traffic will remain open at all times.

The closures are part of a bigger project in which a CVWD contractor, T.E. Roberts, will be installing new irrigation lines, expanding delivery of Colorado River water for irrigation to the La Quinta Civic Center. This new pipeline will also increase the capacity of the existing line allowing nearby golf courses to use Colorado River water rather than pumping groundwater.

Lane closures will be in effect 24 hours a day for safety reasons. The entire project is expected to be completed by March 2019.

Additional traffic advisories will be sent regularly telling residents about the streets where traffic will be impacted.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution and to expect delays when driving past the work zone and to avoid the area if possible.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
