Start the countdown, work on a major Interstate 90 resurfacing job in Spokane starts on May 18.
Pavement rehabilitation and paving will get underway on I-90 from the Division Street Interchange in downtown east to the Custer Street pedestrian overpass near the Spokane east city limits. The project will eliminate the severely rutted highway surface and provide motorists with a smoother ride.
In addition to resurfacing the freeway, many of the on and off ramps in the area will be repaved, as far west as Geiger Blvd. and east to Sullivan Road.
Most of the work will be performed during evening and overnight hours to reduce the effects during the heavier travel periods. All travel lanes will be open to traffic from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The project is scheduled to be finished around Labor Day weekend.
