PROJECT BACKGROUND:

The project involves replacement of an existing 4-lane low water crossing with a new 4-lane all-weather bridge, approximately 650 feet long, over the Whitewater River on Cathedral Canyon Drive.

BENEFITS:

During heavy rains, this low water crossing becomes impassable and is closed to through traffic, severing one of only two North/South connections between Cathedral City's downtown and the many residential and commercial neighborhoods north of the Whitewater River.

Construction of the bridge will allow traffic to cross the Whitewater River while storm waters flow below
