Riverside construction project begins with first phase of road closures

SPOKANE, Wash. —  The Riverside construction project we’ve been telling you about begins Monday — and it could put a damper on your commute downtown.

The first phase has Riverside Avenue closed at Division St. west to Bernard St.
