Major I90 Impact Project Coming

More than 100,000 drivers a day on I-90 in east Spokane will find their travels slowed during July and August while two freeway bridges get some much-needed repairs and resurfacing.

Starting Monday, July 11, crews will remove the existing asphalt surface to reach and repair the underlying concrete bridge deck and concrete approach slabs on the Altamont Street and Havana Street structures.

Traffic will be squeezed into two lanes in each direction, 24-hours-per-day, until the project’s scheduled completion Aug. 4.

To keep traffic flowing, WSDOT will also reduce I-90’s four lanes to two lanes in the 1.4-mile section between the bridges, plus several on and off ramps will be closed.
