The City of Spokane project to rehabilitate Northwest Blvd. from Alberta to Maple streets is expected to reopen soon, although the release sent out by the City didn’t say exactly when, just ‘this week.’ The project included installation of a concrete intersection at Northwest Blvd. and Cochran St., and ADA curb ramps as necessary.
Until the street reopens, Northwest Blvd. from Ash to Alberta streets remains reduced to one lane in each direction. Additionally, Alberta St. is closed at Northwest Blvd., and Cochran St./T.J. Meenach Bridge is closed to southbound motorists at its intersection with Northwest Blvd. The detour is Wellesley or Garland avenues to Ash St. then to Maxwell Ave., onto Pettit Dr. and vice-versa.
The $1.9 million project is being funded by the 10-Year Street Bond and Spokane Transit Authority.
