Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) Sanitary Sewer Rehab project- Installation of a pipe liner to rehab sanitary sewer pipes at various locations around town is underway at the following locations: 
- Rowan Ave. east of Nevada along north side of street. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Rowan but shifted south between Nevada and Helena streets.
- Jackson St. from Perry east to Hogan will begin Saturday, Mar. 15, closing the Perry/Hogan intersection. A detour of Perry St. will take vehicles to the east via Carlisle, Madelia and Buckey.
- 29th Ave. from Martin St. west about 700 feet will have the center lane, one in each direction, closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The outside lanes will remain open.
Signalized Intersection Work Francis and Freya- A signal removal and replacement will occur at the Francis/Freya intersection Monday, March 17 with construction continuing for approximately one month.  Flagging at the intersection will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.  The dedicated right turn lane will be closed for southbound traffic on Freya Street in order to construct the new roadway at the northwest corner.  All traffic movements will still be allowed.   The right turn onto westbound Francis Avenue will be routed from the through lane.  Additional traffic congestion is anticipated. This traffic configuration will remain in place for approximately 1 month or until HMA paving is completed at this location. Traffic is encouraged to find alternate routes. PCMS boards are running to alert motorists of this upcoming work.

Southbound Lane Closure North Division- The center southbound lane will be closed on North Division Street on the north side of the Francis Avenue intersection 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, March 12 – 13 to allow for maintenance and repairs to the Photo Red System.

North Division Street Lane Closure- Two lanes will be closed on North Division Street from East Sharpe Avenue to East Desmet Avenue, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Friday, March 14 to accommodate work associated with Bergan’s Block construction.

Chandler Watermain Reroute Project gets underway- Construction of a new 42 inch diameter water main begins on Chandler from 8th to 7th Avenue, on 8th from Chandler to Cowley, and on Cowley from 7th to 8th Avenue.

I-90, US 2, US 195, US 395, and selected state routes/Sweeping- Be alert for slow moving sweeping operations on most highway routes, especially in the Spokane metro area.  Sweepers and/or water flushing trucks followed by warning vehicles will be moving slowly along highway shoulders.  On multi-lane freeways and divided highways, sweeping may be taking place on the inside shoulder along the left lane.

North Spokane Corridor/Francis Avenue Bridge and Intersection Improvements- Road work activities resume Monday March 17th.  The temporary traffic signal at the Francis/Freya intersection will be complete and activated.  During this transition work crews will be flagging traffic at the intersection between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Drivers with time-sensitive travel may wish to find alternate routes to their destinations during this work.  In addition, the contractor will need to close the dedicated right turn lane for southbound traffic on Freya Street in order to construct the new roadway at the northwest corner.  All traffic movements will still be allowed, but the right turn onto westbound Francis Avenue will need to be done from the through lane so some additional traffic congestion is anticipated.  This traffic configuration will remain in place for approximately 1 month, and will be restored once the asphalt paving is completed at this location.
