Construction season in the city of Spokane is getting into full swing with more than $74 million in street and Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) projects on the schedule. This will be the City’s biggest construction season with major work happening citywide.

Projects that have already started include:

  • Lincoln and Monroe from 4th to 8th Avenue
  • Rowan Avenue from Alberta Street to Monroe Street
  • Combined Sewer Overflow Tank (CSO) on Pettet Drive and TJ Meenach

Projects beginning in the near future:

  • Combined Sewer Overflow Tank (CSO) at Monroe and Bridge Avenue, April 18
  • Signal installation at Monroe and Summit Blvd, between Bloomsday and Hoopfest
  • Lincoln and Monroe from 2nd to Main Avenue, mid to late May

“Construction can interrupt our daily commuting and shopping routines, but supporting local business during construction is essential,” said Mayor Condon. “We ask citizens to make every effort to reach their favorite businesses even when construction makes travel inconvenient.” 

Among this year’s highlights, Downtown will receive a much needed repair on Monroe and Lincoln from 2nd Avenue to Main Street. Although this is a major arterial, two lanes of traffic will remain open on each of these streets to keep traffic moving and businesses accessible. Great things are happening downtown and getting citizens to their favorite locations without major inconvenience is a priority.

Downtown projects are a big part of this year’s construction season. As that area of the city continues to grow, several projects are happening this year to help build a better downtown, and a better Riverfront Park.
