Ramon Road construction

Ramon Road construction

Construction is underway on Ramon Road between Calle Santa Cruz and El Cielo. Crews are replacing an old pipeline that was experiencing severe and frequent leaks. This project will improve water reliability and reduce water loss in that area.

Construction will reduce lanes both eastbound and westbound during the day. In the evenings and on weekends Ramon Road will remain open (though you'll probably notice that there is only temporary paving in place). During weekdays, please use alternate routes if possible. Keep in mind, Palm Springs High School starts on August 8 this year.
