The city of Spokane Valley has put out a flurry of press releases this week announcing a whole bunch of road construction projects coming up as they try to finish as much as they can before the weather gets too cold. The good news is, most of the projects are small and won't cause much of a disruption. So, here we go.
Crews are expected to be working on Argonne Road between Indiana and Trent next week. The work will take place at night and all lanes will be open during the day. There will be one lane of traffic in each direction between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. The project should last about a week.
Sands Road between Bowdish and Bates will be closed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday for a community service project at the cemetery. On Monday there will be work on Carnahan Road between 16th and Kahuna that will leave only a single lane open.
Work is expected to start next week on Fancher Road between Sprague and Broadway. Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction. The project is expected to last until early October. The stormwater swales on the south side of Sprague Avenue will be getting some improvements between Park Road and Thierman Road. Road work is included in the project, which should last until late October.
Work on University Road between Union and Main is continuing and should be completed by early October. The planned start to resurface Mission Ave. between Union and Pines Road has been postponed to late September or early October.
That's where things stand right now, but road construction is somewhat famous for its unpredictability.
