Ash/Maple Street Project

SPOKANE, Wash.- Drivers beware: Road construction will begin Monday on the Ash/Maple street project.

Ash Street from Broadway to Northwest Boulevard will be closed starting at 6 a.m. After work on Ash is done, crews will move to Maple Street, also from Broadway to Northwest Boulevard.

During the project, Boone Avenue will be closed at Ash. Northwest Boulevard will be reduced to one lane between Walnut and Oak.

It's a $4 million project and a part of Spokane's ten-year street bond. But the closures are not good news for some business owners.

The roads need to be repaired, but businesses along the construction route aren't happy with the detours. Construction season, already set to begin, as roadblock signs are out are out in force.

All lanes of Ash will be closed starting Monday morning. Drivers will be rerouted to Monroe at Garland. The entire project to rebuild Ash and Maple will take six months.

A similar project began April 11th of 2007, where crews worked on Maple and Ash from Northwest Boulevard north, up to Wellesley. The construction project ended just about six months later, in September of last year.
