After experience heavy damage in that Valentine’s Day Storm From Hell earlier this year, a section of Avenue 44 in Indio has reopened top traffic.
That section of Avenue 44, along the Whitewater Storm Channel, experienced heavy damage and a 24″ waterline had to be repaired by the Indio Water Authority before street repairs could commence. City staff were able to acquire a majority of the $312,000 funding from the Federal Highway Administration to rebuild the road, according to a press release from the city of Indio.
The City has been developing a long-term plan to construct a permanent bridge over the storm channel. The construction of the permanent bridge will likely begin in about three years, taking 18 months to complete.
