Wellesley-Market Intersection Revisions (NSC)

Project Number: 2019108

Status: Construction

Construction Estimate: $2,800,000

Project Description: This project is necessary to lower the Wellesley/Market intersection to properly connect with WSDOT's North Spokane Corridor improvements. The project will widen Wellesley Ave. between Haven St. and Market St. from 4 to 5 lanes to increase intersection capacity in anticipation of future traffic conditions. Additionally, the existing 30" and 12" water mains in Wellesley Ave. and Market St. will be replaced and lowered.

Project Location(s) and Schedule

  • Wellesley Avenue from Haven Street to Market Street
  • Intersection of Haven Street and Broad Avenue

Project is scheduled to start in early spring and will take 3 to 5 months to complete. Crews will be in the area during the scheduled time frame. All schedules are approximate and dependent on weather and unforeseen delays. Schedule to be determined.

Work will be split into two phases: Phase 1: Wellesley Avenue and Market Street work and Phase 2: Haven Street and Broad Street intersection work. Work will include modifying the storm drainage system, improvements to water and storm systems as necessary, modifying the traffic signal system, installing an additional sanitary sewer manhole in Haven Street at Broad Avenue, and installing new curbs and sidewalks through the project area. For more detailed information, please review the Project Overview.

Water service will be maintained throughout construction. Limited service interruptions of a few hours will occur. Homeowners and businesses will receive advanced notice prior to any interruption.

In addition to the City’s work, Avista will be lowering a gas line on Wellesley between Haven and Market.

Construction will cause increased noise and dust. The contractor is required to control dust.

Contractors are required to provide two business day's notice to a homeowner/business if the homeowner/business owner's property will be directly impacted by the work. This includes access issues.
