Reporter Mike Prager has a story today on structurally deficient bridges, including the span over the Spokane River that carries southbound traffic on Sullivan Road. The bridge has been deteriorating for years and this year the city of Spokane Valley imposed weight restrictions to help prolong the life of the bridge until the city can get enough money to build a new one. The Spokane Valley City Council is scheduled to discuss an option during Tuesday's council meeting that would temporarily reinforce the bridge so the weight restrictions can be lifted.
