Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) crews will be working in the intersection of Portola Avenue and Magnesia Falls Drive in Palm Desert on Tuesday, Nov. 24 and Wednesday, Nov. 25.
The work involves replacing concrete valve collars on valves within that intersection as part of required maintenance to the domestic water distribution system. The work will not interrupt service.
On Tuesday starting about 7 a.m., northbound Portola Avenue will be reduced to a single lane open to traffic. On Wednesday starting about 7 a.m., southbound Portola Avenue will be reduced to a single lane open to traffic. The closed lanes are expected to reopen by 2:30 p.m. on each day.
Motorists are encouraged to use caution when driving past the construction zone and to avoid the area if possible. CVWD appreciates everyone’s patience while the work is being performed.
