City Of Spokane Road Construction Season Starting

Apparently all the City of Spokane needed to officially start the road construction season was the release of the 2012 Regional Road Construction Map (see below).

A project to rehabilitate Francis Ave. from Freya to Havana streets is set to begin Monday, April 16. Traffic will be reduced to one lane each direction. Francis will be widened to a five lane roadway with a continuous center turn lane and sidewalks, bike lanes, and a swale/planting.

The $1.3 million project is being funded by the Transportation Improvement Board and Real Estate Excise Tax money.

Also on Monday, construction starts on new Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO 38, 39, and 40) tanks on S. Riverton Ave. New underground concrete sewer/stormwater storage basins and associated overflow and cleaning appurtenances will be constructed in Upriver Dr. between Magnolia and Regal streets. South Riverton Ave. from Magnolia to Regal streets will be closed to traffic once construction begins.
