Palm Desert motorists can expect delays at El Paseo and Portola Avenue from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday Dec. 3 while workers replace pavement to prepare for installation of new traffic signal loops at the intersection, a city spokesman said Monday.

The signal at El Paseo and Portola Avenue will be in flash mode and lane closures will occur, City of Palm Desert spokesman David Hermann said in a statement.

"Delays are expected and motorists are encouraged to allow extra time or use alternate routes," Hermann said. The work is part of Palm Desert's citywide traffic signal maintenance program, which has been replacing and upgrading signal infrastructure at intersections across the community in recent weeks."

The program is scheduled to be completed later this month, Hermann said.
