Two sections of Second Avenue as well as portion of Spokane Falls Boulevard east of downtown that have been closed for construction projects are reopening!
Here’s what’s reopening:
• Second Avenue from Arthur to Division streets has been paved and is now open to traffic.
• Second Avenue from Howard Street to Sunset Boulevard is expected to be paved and open to traffic by Saturday, June 11.
• Spokane Falls Boulevard from Hamilton to Division streets is expected to reopen on Monday, June 13.
These closures are part of three separate construction projects. The City has planned about 40 infrastructure construction projects for 2011 worth some $50 million. The Mayor directed City staff to accelerate projects into 2011 and 2012 to assist the private construction industry. Work in 2011 includes about $12 million in sewer projects that were moved up from 2012 and 2013.
