Work Resumes On Havana St. Overpass

Here's another item on late on this week but it's worth putting out there late or not: construction resumed Monday on a project to build an overpass over the railroad viaduct on Havana St. north of Broadway Ave. Traffic is detoured to Fancher Rd. Once completed this summer, the bridge will have four traffic lanes; the outside traffic lane will be a shared bike lane. Sidewalks will be added on each side.

The $7.9 million project is funded by the Washington State Freight Mobility Board, State Transportation Improvement Board, federal sources, Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroad, and the City of Spokane.
