The southbound Sullivan Road bridge across the Spokane River is expected to close just before the morning commute on Thursday, May 7 as crews prepare to begin demolition of the aging bridge. All traffic will be shifted onto the northbound bridge with two lanes southbound and one lane northbound through early 2016.
Those whose destinations are outside the immediate project area may wish to use alternative routes. Spokane Valley Mall traffic is encouraged to use Evergreen Road as an alternative to avoid congestion and delays. Flora Road via Broadway will provide an alternative for those heading to and from businesses located east of Sullivan on Indiana.
