Local Road Construction Update


SR 27/32nd Ave. to Trent Ave.- Grind out top layer of roadway and resurface with Hot Mix Asphalt.  Construct ADA sidewalk ramps.

North Spokane Corridor/Francis Avenue Bridge and Intersection Improvements- Left turn movements at the Market/Francis intersection are not allowed. Expect congestion and long delays near the Francis Avenue/Market Street intersection and the Francis Ave./Freya Street intersection. Westbound Francis drivers should be alert for flaggers near the BNSF railway crossing.  The south shoulder is designated for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

US 195/Cheney-Spokane Road Interchange- Be alert for northbound and/or southbound lane restrictions.  Northbound US 195 is reduced to one through lane in the vicinity of Cheney-Spokane Road.  That restriction may be removed when the barrier is taken out.  The northbound left turn lane remains closed.  Northbound drivers need to use Qualchan Road to access Cheney-Spokane Road.  Northbound drivers should be alert for possible congestion and slowing traffic.  The southbound off ramp to Cheney-Spokane Road is now closed so drivers will need to be alert for southbound highway traffic slowing to make right turns into Cheney-Spokane Road. This is a long-term construction configuration. 

8th Avenue just east of Wilbur Court - Closed through Tuesday, November 5 for utility work. Signs redirect traffic to 4th Ave.

Adams from Trent to Wellesley - Closed to traffic through Friday, November 8 for sidewalk improvements.  Drivers are redirected via Evergreen or Progress.

Greene St. Bridge- A project to increase the life of the Greene Street Bridge over the Spokane River means lane restrictions on the bridge and on Greene Street between South Riverton Avenue and Upriver Drive. The work will improve the bridges' load rating, allowing larger trucks and loads to use it. The project includes installing fiber-reinforced polymer to the bridge deck and floor beams. 

Spokane Falls Blvd. Closure- Spokane Falls Boulevard from Bernard Street to Washington Street will be closed beginning Wednesday, November 6 through Friday, November 15.  Detours will be in place directing traffic to Riverside Avenue and Washington.  Bernard Street from Main Avenue and Spokane Falls Boulevard northbound will be closed to thru traffic with local access only.  The work will be to add sewer and water line connections to the Convention Center Hotel under construction.

Main Ave. Closure- Main Avenue, just west of Monroe Street, will be closed for sewer line repair work. Vehicles enter the Peaceful Valley neighborhood from the west, and Spokane Transit Authority buses will also serve the area from the west.  The sidewalks along Main will remain open, allowing for pedestrians and cyclists to access Peaceful Valley from downtown on Main.

Liberty St. Construction- Construction to rehabilitate Liberty from Oak Street to Ash Place and Ash Place from Liberty to Dalton is beginning.
