Indio will soon have a new spot to gas up and, perhaps more importantly, grab some surprisingly good fried chicken and other quick food items.
The City of Indio announced that major road improvements will take place on the northwest corner of Indio Boulevard and Avenue 48 from Monday, October 14 to Thursday, November 7, 2019 in preparation for the construction of a new Tower Market gasoline station and convenience store.
The improvements will include grinding the top surface of the street and overlaying it with new asphalt – as well as removal and reconstruction of various concrete curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and driveways. Roadway striping will be installed after all pavement work is complete.
Work will occur between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
For those commuting through the area, expect traffic signals at Indio Boulevard and Avenue 48, and at Dillon Road and Avenue 48 to on flashing red for public safety starting October 21, 2019 – so, if you can, try yo use a different route. Access will be maintained to all private and public facilities within the work limits, with lane closures and traffic control, during the duration of the project.
In addition to the Tower Market, the lot will be developed to include two 3,500 square-foot pads for future restaurants. The developer, Tower Energy Group, is funding the entire cost of the road improvements.
No word on when the Tower Market will open. It will be the fourth location in the Coachella Valley joining La Quinta, Palm Desert, and the recently completed spot in Coachella.
Update: Thanks to Brandon for pointing out that Cathedral City is also getting a Tower Market at Date Palm and Ortega.
