The Monroe Street Bridge will be closed for about two weeks starting on Monday, June 3. Motorists will be detoured to the Washington Street Bridge, and you should expect delays.
The closure is for utility work for a project that will manage stormwater from some City streets and from streets within the Kendall Yards development. The project requires significant excavation work at the north end of the bridge.
The $1.6 million joint City of Spokane-Kendall Yards project catches stormwater that is currently flowing, untreated, into the Spokane River. It will now direct runoff to a retention tank, then pump it to a treatment area in a new park being built on the Kendall Yards site.
The park will include grass-lined swales that store and filter the stormwater, then percolate it into the ground.
