Road Construction Updates For Next Week

Most construction work will be suspended by noon on Friday, August 30 in anticipation of increased holiday traffic.  Work resumes Tuesday, September 3rd.  Most of the other projects underway on state highways in the Eastern Region will not affect Labor Day weekend holiday travel.

SR 27/32nd Ave. to Trent Ave.- Striping lane lines and placing other pavement markings starts after Labor Day weekend.  Be alert for lane restrictions between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. as crews grind out top layer of roadway and resurface with Hot Mix Asphalt. 

SR 291/Division Street to the Stevens County Line- Mainline paving is complete.  Paving of the side street approaches continues between Rifle Club Rd. and Division St.  Pavement repair at the Seven Mile/SR 291intersection is scheduled for the week of September 3-6.  Surface grinding will also commence in spot locations for the entire job.

The south shoulder is designated for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

I-90/Division Street to Liberty Park- Lane restrictions on I-90, both eastbound and westbound in downtown Spokane during evening and overnight hours on Tuesday, September 3. There will be intermittent shoulder closures on I-90 between Maple and Hamilton during daytime hours to

This is a long-term construction configuration.  The US 195/Inland Empire Way intersection is now closed.  Inland Empire Way traffic is directed to the Thorpe Road intersection.  This is a permanent closure to accommodate the new northbound Cheney-Spokane Road northbound on ramp
