Spokane Project Updates – 6-2-09

June 3, 2009

Spokane Project Updates – 6-2-09 4th Avenue Off-Ramp Construction Progress Work on the 4th Avenue Ramp is going well.  The last of 22 underground shafts and columns for the off-ramp was completed last week, more than a month ahead of schedule.  Crews will now shift to the replacement of storm drains, curbs, sidewalks and new concrete paving on lower Spokane eastbound, and to the superstructure that will support the ramp roadway. In addition, work on the water quality vault just west of the intersection of 6th Avenue S and S Spokane is expected to finish up during the week of June 8. Upcoming Traffic Impacts This week, June 1 through 4, crews will be working between First Avenue S and East Marginal Way along westbound Spokane, doing subsurface investigations.  On Monday and Tuesday (June 1 & 2) the right lane on westbound Spokane will be closed beyond the First Avenue on-ramp as far as East Marginal Way, leaving one travel lane open. On Wednesday and Thursday nights (June 3 & 4) there will be a full closure of westbound Spokane between First and Colorado from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Access to the westbound on-ramp to the Spokane Viaduct at First Avenue will be maintained. During the full closure Wednesday and Thursday nights, all vehicles turning onto westbound Spokane from First Avenue will be directed onto the on-ramp.  Vehicles wanting to access East Marginal Way or Harbor Island from First Avenue can use Hanford. In mid-June QWEST will start relocating lines in the eastbound Spokane roadway between East Marginal Way and First Avenue.  Access will be maintained throughout and traffic impacts are expected to be minor. Starting mid-July, eastbound Spokane will be closed to through traffic between East Marginal Way and First Avenue, for approximately 12 weeks.  Local access will be maintained. More information on schedule and impacts will be available in the coming weeks.
