Yes, next week really is September. For now road construction season is still in full swing and there are some projects coming up that might mess with your commute. Eighth Avenue will be closed just east of Wilbur Court begining at 8 a.m. Tuesday for utility work. Traffic will be detoured via Sixth Avenue or 10th Avenue. The road will reopen at 3:30 p.m.
Spokane County will be doing some chip seal work on Dishman-Mica Road next week. Crews will be working from the southern Spokane Valley city limits to Madison Road on Wednesday and from Madison Road to Highway 27 on Thursday. Expect to see lane closures and flaggers.
Other big projects are still underway as well: Argonne Road is down to one lane in each direction from Wellesley to Bigelow Gulch, Bruce Road is closed from Stoneman to Day-Mount Spokane Road and a roundabout is being constructed at Mission Avenue and Harvard Road in Liberty Lake.
