Project starts today and will widen Market Street from the railroad
crossing just north of Parksmith Drive to Farwell Road. Improvements
include two 11 foot lanes, a center two way left turn lane, and bike lanes.
New sidewalks and curbs will be constructed throughout most of the project at
locations where they do not currently exist. Along with these road
improvements, the Spokane County Utilities Division will construct a sewer line.
Phase 1 – Full road
closure starting Monday, April 11, 2016 and lasting approximately 45 days.
Local access will be allowed to local businesses and homes. The
road surface will be rough soil and the road will often be blocked by
equipment. A signed detour route will direct traffic around the project
on future SR 395 (North Spokane Corridor).
Phase 2 – The road will be
opened while under construction. Two way traffic will be maintained
through the project with either channelization devices or flaggers.
Motorists should expect delays. The estimated date for completion
is July 20, 2016.
