Crews have wrapped another road construction project on the upper South Hill just in time for the beginning of the fall semester at Ferris High School and Adams Elementary.

The two-phase rehabilitation effort bulldozed 37th Avenue between Regal and Custer Streets back down to the original roadbed.

 The $4,800,000 project involved replacing an aging water main, adding storm water management systems and pouring new curbs and sidewalks.

 Crews laid down new asphalt and then topped it off with wide bike lanes for kids hoping to ride to school.

Mark Sterk, Director of Security and Transportation for Spokane Schools, inspected the project Friday. Sterk says he appreciates the contractor completing the work on time so that when classes start next week, parents and students won’t have any problems reaching Adams or Ferris.
