Do you own or manage a business that’s on a route slated for road construction this year? There’s a lot of construction planned for this year, so the chances are good. Not that it’s a bad thing. More construction means more nice new roads and more people working. It also means we’re getting ‘more bang for our buck’ because contractor prices are so low this year.
Its not so great for businesses though. Some people prefer not to deal with the challenges of getting to a business near where construction is taking place. If one of those businesses is yours, the City of Spokane and the Downtown Spokane Partnership can help you keep business moving. Check out the new SpokaneRoadFix.net website to find out how to get your ‘Business Open’ sign (it won’t be just like the one above). The sites’ ‘Business Survival’ page also has other resources and ideas to help with business both during and after construction.
