I-10 Widening and Reconstruction Project

Monthly Public Outreach and Communication Report

State Project H.004100

Project Status

Beginning early June, crews will begin drilling foundation shafts and pouring concrete at the abutment wall near I-10 westbound near E. Lakeshore Dr. There will be nighttime work during this operation between the hours of 3 p.m. and 7 a.m. This nighttime work is anticipated to last through August, weather permitting.


Permanent pile driving operations continue in City Park Lake to construct the bridge piers for the westbound bridge widening. Pile driving will occur Monday through Saturday during daytime hours and is anticipated to be completed in July, weather permitting. No significant impacts to traffic are expected during this operation.


Drainage operations remain ongoing along the I-10 westbound corridor. Crews are currently working along Baywood Ave. from E. Lakeshore to Ebony Ave. installing storm drain pipes and catch basins. This will continue along the project corridor.


While work is ongoing, residents and motorists throughout the corridor can expect to see an increase in truck traffic, as well as an increase in noise during the day. Construction activities continue to be monitored by various noise and vibration monitors throughout the corridor. 

On November 27, 2023, E. Lakeshore Dr. was closed where it passes beneath I-10 as depicted in red on the accompanying diagram. This local street will remain closed for approximately three years while crews work on the permanent widening of I-10 over City Park Lake. Northbound and southbound motorists on E. Lakeshore Dr. are advised to use Dalrymple Dr. for the duration of this closure.  

This portion of E. Lakeshore Dr. will not be accessible to motorists, pedestrians or bicyclists as this is an active construction site.

Pile driving operations continue in City Park Lake on the construction of the permanent bridge piers.
