Sunset Boulevard from Royal Street to Lindeke Street

Project Number: 2014094

Construction Estimate: $2,500,000.00

Project Location: Sunset Boulevard from Royal Street to Lindeke Street

Description: The City of Spokane will repave Sunset Blvd. between the intersections of Royal St. and Lindeke St. This project will update the existing pavement surface by grinding the existing pavement down and overlaying it with new asphalt. The new surface will be striped with 3 vehicle lanes and 1 bicycle lane. There will be 2 travel lanes going uphill and one travel lane going downhill. A wide sidewalk with curb will be created along the north side of the roadway and a new bike lane will be installed on the south side of the roadway. Wheelchair ramps will be brought into ADA compliance and minor storm sewer upgrades and/or repairs will also be included in the project. Sunset Boulevard will remain open during construction.

Current project status as of November 2018 and running through Winter

The work on the Sunset Blvd project will continue into 2019. Traffic control at the intersection of Government Way and Sunset will be removed during the winter, allowing for free flow of traffic at the intersection. Signal will be in place and functional. In addition, one lane of traffic will move East (down the hill) and two lanes of traffic will run West (up the hill).
