You might want to avoid Highway 111 in west Indio this week

Road construction season is on in the Coachella Valley and that means delays and detours pretty much everywhere the eye can see.

One particular project to watch out for this week is a slurry seal project on a one-mile stretch of Highway 111 between Jefferson and Madison. Work on the road is scheduled to take place every day this week between 6 am and 5 pm, according to the Desert Sun.

If you are headed out the way, you may want to take Fred Waring or Avenue 48 or 50 instead.

Good luck and drive safe.
