Riverside Grind and Overlay (Division to Wall)

Project Number: 2016120

Status: Construction

Construction Estimate: $4,000,000

Project Description: Pavement grind and overlay and reconfiguration of traffic lanes on Riverside from Division to Wall to accommodate new bicycle lanes. Vehicle lanes will be reduced from four to three to accommodate the new bike lanes. Lane re-striping from Wall to Monroe to continue the new traffic reconfiguration. Replacement of main waterline, including service replacements as needed.

This project will not remove existing sidewalks. ADA ramps will be installed as needed. Pedestrian traffic on Riverside will be maintained as much as possible during construction. Temporary, short-term sidewalk closures may be necessary to facilitate construction work.

The scope of this construction project includes the newly installed Spokane Transit Authority bus stop facilities. For more information on STA's new City Line, including construction information, visit their website. For more information on STA's future plans, visit STA Moving Forward.
