Francis Ave. Construction Starts Monday

Avista is scheduled to begin natural gas line work on Francis just west of Monroe on Monday, May 20. Francis will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Wall and Cedar for 3 to 4 weeks. Avista crews will work seven days a week until the project is done. Some traffic impacts will start Sunday afternoon, May 19, with crews placing signs, cones, temporary striping, and barriers for the project.

This work is in addition to work planned by the Washington State Department of Transportation on West Francis. WSDOT will repave Francis from Division Street west to the Stevens County line. That work currently is expected to begin on May 28.
