You’re invited to join Mayor Mary Verner, representatives from the Freight Mobility Board, artist Roger Ralston, and other officials for the Freya St. Bridge completion ceremony tomorrow (Thursday) at 4 p.m. I’ve got training tomorrow so can’t attend but if anyone wants to go in my place, you’re welcome to take pictures for me.
The Freya St. Bridge project built a single structure over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad lines just north of Broadway Avenue, replacing two side-by-side bridges. The $7 million project began August 1, 2009, and is set to be complete by Friday, May 28, 2010. The project was funded by federal Bridge Replacement money, the Freight Mobility Strategic Investment Board, and City of Spokane.
For the ceremony, motorists can park in the dirt lot on Springfield Ave. to the west of the bridge.
