Division Repaving Starts Next Week

Work starts again on Monday, April 4 to finsih repaving Spokane’s busiest north-south arterial — Division Street.

Crews will repave Division Street between Euclid Avenue and Francis Avenue. The majority of work will be scheduled for evening and overnight hours to avoid peak commute times. The work should take about 10 weeks to complete.

Crews paved the intersection of Division Street and Wellesley with concrete last season and then put the project on hold for the winter.

More than 43,000 vehicles travel on this portion of Division Street. It’s the main north-south route through Spokane and serves as US 2 and US 395.
