A Couple (Almost) Completed Projects

- 11th Ave. from Altamont to Thor streets has reopened to traffic, after work to install a new water line. A handful of streets were repaired following the project, including 11th Ave. from Altamont Blvd. to Julia St. and N. Altamont Blvd. from 11th to Ninth avenues; and Ninth Ave. from Perry to Julia streets. Additional work will be done in the spring, when the remaining part of the main will be installed from Thor to Havana streets. The overall project will replace a water transmission main with a larger main in Hartson and 11th avenues from Havana to Sherman streets.

The $3.5 million project is funded by the City of Spokane Water Department and the 10-Year Street Bond.

- Addison and Standard streets from Francis Ave. to Colton Pl. is expected to reopen to traffic next Friday, Nov. 19. Additional work will be done in the spring of 2011, when the top lift of asphalt will be laid from Lincoln Rd. to Colton Pl. Once completed, the project will rehabilitate Addison and Standard streets from Francis Ave. to Colton Pl. and Beacon Ave. from Dakota to Nevada streets.

The $1.7 million project is being funded by the 10-Year Street Bond and City of Spokane Wastewater Department.
