Vista Chino Bridge

The winter rains often close Vista Chino where it crosses Whitewater River east of Gene Autry Trail. The City of Palm Springs plans to replace the 4-lane, low-water crossing on Vista Chino with a 4-lane bridge across Whitewater River.
 
On January 23, 2017, Caltrans approved an additional $7,082,000 in federal funding to complete the final design phase for the project.The City is excited to move forward with the final design of this important project, which has now been approved with $8.6M in federal funds to date.
 
The half-mile bridge is projected to be completed around 2020/2021.
