Work Progresses on Howard Street Bridge South Project

Josh Morrisey, City of Spokane Parks & Recreation, Outreach Coordinator

Friday, June 9, 2017 at 4:52 p.m.

Work on the first phase of the Promenade – the Howard Street South Channel Bridge - is progressing well. Contractor T. LaRiviere worked through a cold winter on the drilled shafts for the piers, including underwater work in heated dive suits.

All upright supports have been completed and spans of beams (girders) have been set, reaching all the way across the channel. Work has begun on bridge edges where railings will sit in preparation to pour the deck this summer. The project is on track to be completed this fall.

The Howard Street Bridge South project is part of the Riverfront Park Redevelopment approved by citizens in 2014. The 184-foot bridge will have unique "get down" and "get even" features that allow users to go out over the water on one side and step down close to the water on the other. This design was in response to community feedback about a desire to be able to connect more with the river. The original Howard Street South Channel Bridge had lived out its useful service life and was recommended for replacement.
