Local Road Construction Update

For more information on all the projects below, and to see them in relation to each other on a map, check out SRTC's 2015 Spokane Regional Construction Map here. The map is updated as new projects start and existing ones wrap up.

You may notice that projects underway now are more prominent while ones that will start later this construction season are more in the background.

Construct two freeway mainline bridges over the BNSF tracks and two pedestrian bridges.  Realign BNSF mainline and spur tracks.  Extend Children of the Sun Trail into the Hillyard area.
