Street crews prepare Bloomsday route

Spokane city crews are working along the Bloomsday road run route this week getting it cleaned and in good shape for Sunday’s 33rd running of the popular event.

No parking signs are being posted along Riverside Avenue from downtown through Browne’s Addition to clear lanes for cleaning. Earlier today, the signs were up along the south side of Riverside Avenue just west of Monroe Street.

Drivers are being asked to watch for the signs and to move their vehicles, which if not moved, could be towed.

In addition, last-minute repairs are being made along the route, including crack sealing along Fort George Wright Drive.

The 9 a.m. start could draw 50,000 runners and walkers, including world-class race competitors.
