SPOKANE, Wash. - On Sunday, the City of Spokane reminded the public on Twitter about a new road project near Gonzaga.
Starting on Monday June 11, Sharp Avenue between Ruby and Hamilton will be closed for stormwater improvements.
The nearly $2 million state funded project will improve water runoff and filtration systems along the road as well as reduce the two lanes of travel down to one.
A bike lane will also be added and the center planted medians that already exist will be enlarged to act as stormwater swales. The water main along Sharp will also be replaced.
According to the city, north and south cross streets between Ruby and Hamilton will remain open whenever possible. A detour will be in place which will redirect traffic to Mission Avenue.
The project is slated to be “substantially completed” by Fall 2018.
