Weekend Overnight Closure of Westbound Spokane Street Viaduct

Work Scheduled from 10pm to 5am 
UPDATE-Work to be overnight Saturday

Crews working to widen the Spokane Street Viaduct must close the westbound lanes of the Spokane Street Viaduct for one night this weekend. They’ll remove temporary infrastructure that’s been used to stabilize ongoing work.  The removal is contingent on other project elements, so it’s not yet finalized whether it will be done Saturday overnight or Sunday overnight. Whichever night the work starts, it will run from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next day.  During this work, southbound I-5 traffic will be directed to the Forest Street exit to access surface streets. Northbound I-5 traffic and westbound traffic from Columbian Way will be detoured to surface streets at 6th Avenue South.

Meanwhile, the upper Spokane roadway is getting wider all the time, moving along right on schedule as evidenced by these recent photos.
