If you regularly use Sullivan Road to cross the Spokane River, you might want to replan your route or plan for the drive to take a little longer. Temporary repairs to the west Sullivan bridge that carries southbound traffic are scheduled to start on Monday. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction at 6 a.m. Around noon the southbound traffic will be shifted to the east bridge that usually carries northbound traffic. Once that shift occurs, the weight restrictions that have applied to southbound traffic will no longer be required. The work is scheduled to last until the end of February.
