EAST PALM CANYON DRIVE BETWEEN FARRELL DRIVE AND SMOKE TREE LANE - Smoke Tree Commons, located at E. Palm Canyon Drive and Farrell Drive, will begin work on sewer lines on November 27th. Traffic control will prevent traffic from making left turns at Farrell Barona from E. Palm Canyon Drive. To access Barona Road southbound from E. Palm Canyon Drive use Araby Drive.

SUNRSIE WAY AND SR 111 (VISTA CHINO ROAD) - Beginning December 11, 2007 and continuing through the end of January, 2008, construction will take place to widen the South side of Vista Chino at the Southwest Corner of Vista Chino and Sunrise Way. Traffic controls will be in place during working hours closing the Southernmost Eastbound lane on Vista Chino, and when necessary, the Westernmost Southbound lane on Sunrise Way, restricting Vista Chino and Sunrise Way to one lane of travel in the Eastbound and Southbound directions. During most phases of the work, all lanes will open to normal operation at the end of the working day. Motorists should expect delays and avoid the area if possible. This project is being done by the City of Palm Springs in conjunction with Caltrans and when completed will widen the South side of Vista Chino at Sunrise way to allow for a right hand turning lane. The work involves the removal and replacement of the existing curbs, gutters and storm drain inlets as well as a modification of the existing traffic signal. Dateland Construction is the Contractor.

Please watch for routine and emergency maintenance operations around town.
