The City of Spokane says you can expect congestion and delays on Interstate 90 off-ramps in downtown Spokane until late this week as a result of road construction projects.
A contractor is putting down a final layer of pavement on Second Avenue from Howard Street to Sunset Boulevard. As a result, lane restrictions are in place this week, and intersections without signals were closed, which has slowed traffic coming into downtown from the Lincoln and Maple exits.
Paving work from Browne to Sunset Boulevard is scheduled for Thursday and Friday nights at 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. the next morning, weather permitting. The section from Arthur to Division was completed last week though and is now open again.
Sprague and First avenues are the recommended detour routes. For more recommended detour routes and up-to-date construction closures, check out www.SpokaneRoadFix.net.
