Washington Street Rehabilitation Project under wayPosted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A $1.6 million project to repair Washington St. from Boone to Buckeye avenues got under way May 21. The project is being funded by the City's 10-Year Street Bond and federal grants.
Northbound Washington St. is closed to traffic from Shannon to Buckeye avenues, and reduced to one lane in each direction from Boone to Indiana avenues. The closures will be in place until mid-July. Signs direct traffic to detour routes and local access will be maintained.
This two-and-a-half-month project will include full curb to curb rehabilitation including at the intersections of Shannon Ave. and Buckeye Ave. and a grind-and-overlay repair on Washington St. from Boone to Shannon avenues including the intersection at Boone Ave.
Various water and sewer lines were repaired earlier this spring in this area as part of the project.
