Two City Construction Projects Start Next Week

- Second Ave. from Howard St. to Sunset Blvd. is set to resume on Tuesday, May 31. Work began last year on the project to rehabilitate Second Ave. from Sunset Hwy. to Howard St. and replace a water main and catch basins. Beginning Tuesday, May 31, Second Ave. from Howard St. to Sunset Blvd. will be reduced to one lane of traffic while crews adjust the utilities. This work is expected to last about two weeks. Once utility adjustments are made, the street will be completely closed for two nights while crews pave the street. Paving will take place in the evening/overnight hours to minimize traffic impacts. Once paved, the project will be complete and the street will reopen to traffic.

Additionally, Second Ave. from Arthur to Browne streets is progressing and expected to reopen to traffic by Wednesday, June 1.

- Work on Mission Ave. from Hamilton to Greene streets begins Tuesday, May 31. The project will rehabilitate Mission Ave. from Napa to Greene streets and replace a water transmission main from Hamilton to Greene streets.

Beginning Tuesday, May 31, Mission Ave. from Hamilton to Napa streets will be closed. Drivers north of the Spokane river will be detoured to Indiana Ave. and drivers south of the river will be detoured to Trent Ave. Work on the project is expected to be complete in late September.
