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.


No local projects with impacts to traffic underway currently.


Argonne Road at Knox- Reduced to two lanes in each direction  through mid- to late June for reconstruction of the roadway. The east and west side of the Argonne and Knox intersection will be closed around the clock to all traffic through late May-early June. Left turns are prohibited in all directions at the intersection.Weather permitting, expect nighttime lane reductions through May for paving.

Turns from Indiana Avenue onto northbound Sullivan Road are reduced to one lane.
