There’s been a detour at Market and Francis for the past year over the train tracks as crews worked to build the bridge and today the WSDOT announced it is about complete.
There will be a short opening ceremony at
1:30 p.m. on Friday, November 15th and then cars will start using it a few days after that.
The 455 foot-long Francis
Avenue Bridge replaces the old 160 foot structure ,enabling future construction
of the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) highway lanes, rail tracks, and
pedestrian/bike trail to pass under the structure.
