If you drive Five Mile Rd. (or used to, before the construction anyway), you’ve probably noticed that it’s open to traffic again. Don’t get too excited though, the paving is only temporary. The street will be open to traffic until the spring of 2010 when it will be shut down again so a top coat of asphalt and final detail work can be completed.
Five Mile was widened and rebuilt from Austin to Lincoln roads as a City of Spokane project.
