Another reminder: the Freya Street Bridge closes to ALL traffic for approximately one year starting this Saturday, Aug. 1, at about 7 p.m. The bridge is being replaced and is expected to reopen in the summer of 2010. This project will replace the two side-by-side bridges with a single structure going over the railroad lines just north of Broadway Ave. F
reya St. will be closed from Trent to Alki avenues. Motorists will be detoured around the closure to Broadway Ave, Fancher Rd., and Trent Ave. Freya St. will remain open to local traffic, allowing access to the businesses along the project.
The $9.5 million project is being funded by Bridge Replacement Money, the Freight Mobility Street Improvement Board, and the City of Spokane.
