New Road Construction Stuff For Next Week

There's not much in the way of local transportation construction starting or wrapping up next week. Here's all that I've got this time:

SPOKANE CITYThe Spokane Marathon will take place on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Spokane Falls Blvd. from Stevens to Lincoln streets will be closed from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. The race starts at Riverfront Park along Government Way to Riverside State Park, back along Pettit Dr. through the West Central neighborhood ending at Riverfront Park. Drivers are asked to drive with caution while runners are on the road.

Snoqualmie Pass Load Restrictions- Loads over 12 feet will not be allowed on I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass 24 hours a day starting at 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 through 7 a.m., Friday, Oct. 19, due to single lane closures.

Snoqualmie Lanes Six Day Closure- Give yourself extra time if driving Snoqualmie Pass next week. One lane in each direction will be closed for six days starting Sunday night. The six-day closure is part of the $551 million I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East – Hyak to Keechelus Dam project that’s widening a five-mile stretch of the highway from four to six lanes and improving reliability and safety. The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2017.
