The weather is so nice outside, it must be time for road construction. The city of Spokane Valley is expanding the number of roads being worked on this week. The lane restrictions on Appleway Blvd. between Dishman Mica Road and University Road will continue all week for a road resurfacing project. This work means the intersection of Farr Road and Appleway will be closed to northbound and southbound traffic for a while around mid-day Tuesday. Drivers will be asked to detour to Dishman Mica Road.
Sidewalk upgrades are being done on University Road between Fourth and 16th Avenues. There will be occassional curb lane closures all week; flaggers and signs will direct traffic through the work zone. Everyone remember to slow down in the work zones.
