Weather Delays Completion Of Projects

This morning’s freezing temperatures have delayed three road projects in north Spokane County. Work on these projects began on Tuesday, October 21 and were scheduled for completion later today. However, the cold temperatures have resulted in a one-day delay and traffic will continue to be affected through Friday, October 24th.

• Bigelow Gulch Road from Lehman to Forker will be closed from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily for maintenance and repair work.

• Forker Road from Progress to Bigelow Gulch will be closed daily from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. for maintenance and repair work.

• The intersection at Progress and Forker will be closed daily from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. to rebuild the intersection.

Very interesting Scott. Thanks! And I notice that you're back and forth between Louisiana and Washington. That's an interesting contrast, especially this time of year. I bet their not suffering from 'Snow Armageddon' in Louisiana right now!
