Spokane Valley Fire’s Board of Commissioners has drafted a letter to the Washington State Department of Transportation in support of reconstruction of the Sullivan Road Bridge over the Spokane River. That’s because the bridge has recently been determined to be structurally deficient. Many of the trucks the fire department uses exceed safe weight limits for the bridge, meaning they would have to go miles out of their way to get across the Spokane River at Sullivan. This could mean delayed response times for fires and other emergencies.

The Spokane Valley News Herald has the story.
