Travelers who rely on the Hatch Road Bridge are now able to return to the route connecting U.S. 195 with major arterials in south Spokane. This opening is more than two weeks ahead of the estimated July 31st completion date.

“This project presented one of the most impactful detours for drivers and we are thrilled to be able to open the route up earlier than expected,” says Kirstin Davis, Communications Manager for the City of Spokane.

Benefits of the deck replacement include:

  • Long-term durability and safety of the bridge to accommodate weight and volume of traffic
  • A designated right-hand turn lane from Hatch Road on to northbound U.S. 195 resulting in reduced wait times for vehicles not turning left on to southbound U.S. 195
