Sullivan and Indiana to reopen today or tomorrow

Drivers will be happy to learn that the City of Spokane Valley anticipates opening the intersection of Indiana and Sullivan sometime today or tomorrow. As recently as last week the finishing date for the project to install concrete in the intersection was estimated at Sept. 21. Construction began on Aug. 1 and during most of that time drivers couldn't make east or west turns onto Indiana.

“We have found a way to open up the concrete intersection earlier than planned,” said senior engineer Steve Worley. Crews had planned to install a concrete approach slab next to the Sullivan Bridge made of special, heavy duty concrete that would take 10 days to cure. Worley said the decision was made to use normal concrete for the slab to reduce the time the intersection would be closed. “The impacts to the businesses were more important,” he said.

Crews are putting in curbs and temporary barriers and when that is done the intersection will reopen, Worley said.
