Following an expedited cleanup due to the impacts of Tropical Storm Hilary, the City of Palm Springs is pleased to announce that on Monday, Oct. 2 at 4 pm, city street crews will open two newly constructed temporary lanes along North Indian Canyon Drive at the wash so that motorists can once again use this important gateway artery into Palm Springs and Desert Regional Medical Center, while crews continue to repair the remaining road damage.

“City crews have been working nonstop to reopen Indian Canyon at the wash,” said Mayor Grace Garner. “This is an essential gateway artery to our region’s only trauma center, Desert Regional Medical Center – and we understand how important it is that residents and visitors are able to access this critical roadway so they can to get to get to the hospital, school, or work in a timely manner.”

A new four-way stop has been installed at Palm Springs Station Road and North Indian Canyon Drive. Motorists are advised to use caution crossing the construction zone.

“A big thank you to our street crews for their hard work and ingenuity making this happen,” said City Manager Scott Stiles. “I am extremely proud of this incredibly dedicated team for putting in the hours and going the extra mile.”
