If you drive over the Sullivan Bridge, take note. A repair project is expected to begin in early January and last through the end of February, according to a Spokane Valley press release. The goal of the project is to reinforce the failing bridge so weight restrictions can be removed while the city tries to come up with enough enough money to replace the bridge. (On that note, the City found out last week that it failed to get a $10 million federal grant to rebuild the bridge.)
During the repairs, traffic will be shifted onto the east bridge that usually carries northbound traffic (only the west bridge is failing). This means that traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Since both northbound and southbound traffic will be using the good bridge, the weight limits will not apply.
