Caltrans is starting a major, multi-year repaving project on the 10 freeway between Highways 60 and 111, from near Banning and Beaumont to the Palm Springs turnoff.

Preliminary work starts Monday night, when crews will begin construction on the eastbound side. Two lanes will be revamped, and several large chunks of road will be replaced. Onramps and offramps, as well as guardrail systems, will be upgraded as well.

Officials estimate that the project will take two to three years to complete, and will cost an estimated $210 million, more than half of which comes from the SB1 gas tax.
