Construction expected February 2014
The Jefferson Street project will demolish the existing bridge and northbound Indio Boulevard overcrossing and replace it with a new six-lane bridge with bicycle lanes on each side and sidewalk on northbound side of Jefferson Street. It will also realign and widen portions of Varner Road and add traffic signals at the ramps and intersection of Jefferson Street and Varner Road. This project is estimated to create 500 new jobs over the life of the project.
