A portion of the intersection at Sprague and Sullivan is shut down, which created long traffic delays yesterday. There was a gas leak under the intersection over the winter and Avista make quick repairs at the time. The utility company is now making permanent repairs to the concrete. The concrete has been poured and city engineers are now waiting for the concrete to cure before reopening the closed lanes. The intersection could be back to normal by this afternoon or may need another day to cure. Lab tests will be done today to check. So for right now, avoid the area if you can.
