Document Description
The County of Riverside, in cooperation with the cities of Coachella and Indio, propose to widen Avenue 48 from two lanes to five lanes between Van Buren Street to Dillon Road to accommodate one additional westbound lane and two additional eastbound lanes with a raised concrete median. Six-foot-wide sidewalks and five-foot-wide bicycle lanes would be constructed in the eastbound and westbound directions of Avenue 48. The proposed project would also include the re-striping of pavement along an approximately 600-foot-long section of Avenue 48 west of Van Buren Street and along an approximately 500-foot-long section of Avenue 48 east of Dillion Road. A signal would also be constructed at the intersection of Avenue 48 and Luzon Street. The existing signal at the intersection of Avenue 48 and Dillon Road would also be modified.
