The Washington State Department of Transportation- Eastern Region, has their list of construction

The biggest job is the construction of two bridges over Freya Street at the roundabouts north of Francis. There will also be some sidewalk and street work in the Hillyard Neighborhood.

On Interstate 90 in downtown Spokane, there is bridge joint and concrete panel repair work planned.
