Pay Attention In Area Of Market/Francis

Today, Thursday, April 4, the Market / Francis intersection will be controlled by flaggers for drainage work. The right turn from Francis to northbound Market Street will not be allowed until 3 p.m. today. In general, Left turn movements on Market to Francis are not allowed. The City of Spokane & WSDOT have closed Francis between Market and Crestline for resurfacing and other work.

As a result of the multiple projects, you can expect congestion and long delays near the Francis Avenue and Market Street intersection, especially during the morning and afternoon commute hours. Delays are also possible at the Francis and Freya intersection.

Crews are replacing the existing Francis Avenue Bridge over the railroad tracks with a longer structure to accomodate the North Spokane Corridor.
