In brief: Road work closes part of Maple, Ash

Maple Street is closed from Northwest Boulevard to just north of Wellesley Avenue until mid-June as part of a major rehabilitation project. In addition, Wellesley is reduced one lane in each direction at its intersection with Maple and Ash streets.

Motorists are being detoured to Alberta/Cochran streets to get around the Maple closure.

The project will rehabilitate Maple and Ash streets from Wellesley to Northwest Boulevard and includes some water main replacement, installation of a fiber-optic communications system, and a concrete intersection at Garland and Wellesley. Project meetings for the businesses and residents in the area are held every Friday at 11 a.m. at the Shadle Park Public Library, 2111 W. Wellesley Ave.

The $4 million project is funded by the 10-year street bond, the Water Department and Spokane Transit Authority.
