The Dune Palms Road Bridge Improvement Project
will construct an all-weather access bridge across the Coachella Valley Storm Water Channel in La Quinta (see map for project area). The new, 480-foot-long bridge will address flooding and excess debris on the existing roadway during storms.

Dune Palms Road is now open in both directions.

The newly constructed 480-foot-long bridge will be approximately 86 feet wide and feature:

  • 2, 8-foot-wide bike/cart paths, 1 in each direction
  • 2, 6-foot-wide sidewalks, 1 in each direction

The project also will complete bridge approach roadway improvements (including drainage) to accommodate the raised profile for the bridge, and it will tie into the CV LINK multi-use trail under the bridge and at two secondary connecter trails from Dune Palms Road.
