The Sullivan/Indiana intersection just re-opened after a few months of construction to improve the section leading up to the sixty-year-old Sullivan Bridge, but now the bridge will be going under the knife for improvements. Don't worry - it's only temporary.
In early January, the City of Spokane Valley authorized $358,000 for construction that will allow for increased bridge weight in late February. City council is concerned that decreased weight limits will impact local businesses.
Traffic will be shifted onto the northbound bridge and reduced to one lane in each direction.
Replacing the bridge completely is anticipated for the future. $19.7 million is needed, but they only have half from federal and state sources.
