The planned closing of the I-10 freeway at Date Palm was delayed until Wednesday night due to a storm that passed through the Coachella Valley Tuesday night. 

Construction will resume today as planned. The eastbound side is scheduled to be closed tonight from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. If work is completed on the eastbound side tonight, the westbound side of the I-10 will be closed beginning Thursday night for the same times. Drivers will be forced to use Palm Drive or Bob Hope Drive to enter or exit the freeway during closure times.

Date Palm Drive will also be closed for all traffic from 5p.m. until 7 a.m. each night of construction.
