Market & Francis Traffic Configuration Change Delayed

The left-turning traffic configuration changes at the Market & Francis intersection planned for today, March 12, have been postponed until later in the week, depending on weather.

Originally, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) said left turn movements in all directions would not be allowed for up to two weeks at his location starting today. In general, Francis is now one lane in each direction at the Market Street Intersection, causing some delays on Francis Avenue and Market Street near the BNSF railroad tracks. Crews in that area are removing and replacing the existing Francis Avenue Bridge over the BNSF Railway with a longer structure to accommodate the North Spokane Corridor.
