Traffic Advisory: Work to close intersection and one lane at Washington Street and Calle Tampico


A Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) construction project in La Quinta will close the intersection at Washington Street and Calle Tampico from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12 and Thursday, Dec. 13.

On Dec. 14, construction will continue on Calle Tampico with the closure of the left-most (#1) lane of traffic and the bike path on the westbound side of the street. The right (#2) lane will remain open along with driveway access to all business establishments located along lane closure site. Bicyclists are encouraged to use the bike path on the south side of Calle Tampico or avoid the area completely. For safety reasons, this closure will be in effect for 24 hours a day and is expected to end in mid-January.

The closures are part of a bigger project in which a CVWD contractor, T.E. Roberts, will install 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.

The entire project is expected to be complete by March 2019.

Additional traffic advisories will be issued as necessary.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution and to expect delays when driving near or 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.
