Caltrans opened the new $25.5 million Bob Hope Drive over-crossing on Interstate 10 on Friday, September 23rd. The westbound on-ramp to I-10 and the eastbound off-ramp to Bob Hope Drive are open. The other two ramps, the westbound off- ramp and the eastbound on-ramp, remain closed for construction.

Once the entire project is completed all four ramps on the Bob Hope Interchange will be open. The east bound on-ramp to I-10 from Ramon Road will remain operational.

Construction began in February 2010 on the new structure which is located on Interstate 10 in the Coachella Valley. Caltrans and all the partners involved in this construction project extend their thanks to the communities and motorists for their patience during construction.
