Freya Street Bridge Opens Tonight

The Freya St. Bridge is complete and set to reopen this evening at 7 p.m.!

Construction on the $7 million project to build a single structure over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad lines just north of Broadway Avenue, replacing two side-by-side bridges, began in August of 2009. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.

The project was funded by federal Bridge Replacement money, the Freight Mobility Strategic Investment Board, and City of Spokane.
