Cameron Project Street Beautification Finally Underway!

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) — The construction plan shows in pink shading the work to be undertaken.

Good evening! 

We are pleased to report that the developer of the Cameron project is moving forward with construction of the S. Palm Canyon Dr. and Mesquite Ave. street improvements surrounding the project. The work involves major construction at the S. Palm Canyon Dr. / Mesquite Ave. intersection, including a new westbound right turn lane.

The purpose of this information is to share with you the City’s intent to allow the developer’s contractor to close Mesquite Ave. to traffic to accommodate construction of this work at the intersection with S. Palm Canyon Dr. Ordinarily, the City requires that during construction the contractor maintain 2-way traffic access, and in this case it could be accomplished but extends the duration of the work to 3-4 weeks, and would require a restriction of right turn north onto S. Palm Canyon Dr. due to the construction zone. 

The developer’s contractor proposed to the City an option to close Mesquite Ave. that allows all of that work to occur within 1 week. In an effort to expedite this work, the City is allowing for this closure, and providing advance notice of it. The closure is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 20 through Friday, Aug. 24. Alternative routes are available via Ocotillo Ave., Morongo Road or Sonora Road.

If there are any concerns or questions, please contact Michael Lytar, Senior Public Works Inspector,, or at 760-323-8253 x8734.

Please spread the word to the residents of your neighborhoods!

Thanks so much!
