Construction work on the Havana Street Overpass is set to begin tomorrow, May 11. The project will construct an overpass over the railroad viaduct on Havana St. north of Broadway Ave. The bridge will have 4 traffic lanes; the outside lane will be a shared bike lane. Sidewalks will be added on each side. Traffic will be detoured to Fancher Rd.
The $7.9 million project is funded by the Washington State Freight Mobility Board, State Transportation Improvement Board, federal sources, Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroad, STA, and the City of Spokane.
The Havana Street Overpass is part of the Bridging the Valley (BTV) series of projects. Here’s more information on BTV, although I have to warn you that the information on this website is somewhat dated. I’m hoping to find time this week to start overhauling the site.
