Commuters to and from south Spokane County will notice that their path through Hatch Road will be obstructed starting next week. On Tuesday, August 30th, maintenance work will be performed on the bridge that crosses Latah Creek near Highway 195. The bridge will be closed during morning and early commute hours from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m until Thursday, September 1st. Motorists will need to find an alternate route either through I-90 through the Maple or Division exit or through Smythe Road to Spangle-Creek to Valley Chapel Road. The latter is the long way and by no means a short cut.
