The second phase of a three phase construction project, Miles Avenue from Madison to Clinton Street was widened to a five lane street section, with both a continuous center left turn lane and bike lanes in both directions. In addition, this segment of roadway, which at the time of the project was located in both unincorporated Riverside County as well as the City of Indio jurisdiction, included the design of two new signalized intersections and storm drain system improvements. The storm drainage system will convey both nuisance and storm water to a proposed storm drain system on Clinton Street, under the Phase 3 portion of the overall project.
The project also included the design and coordination on the relocation of a private water line for the Boe Del Heights Homeowner Association as well as coordination with Indio Water Authority on the relocation of water meters and future water main stubs to service the Boe Del Heights area. Finally, along the north side of Miles Avenue, IID had an overhead distribution line which needed to be relocated to make way for the street widening. Coordination and review activities were necessary to approve the location IID pole relocations and have IID forces provide the field relocations prior to the start of construction. This project was completed in the early summer of 2009 at a construction cost of $2.1 million.
