The Freya Street Bridge, closed since last August, is going to open at 7 p.m. today following construction of a new span over the BNSF Railway lines between Sprague and Trent avenues.

Garco Construction of Spokane completed the $7 million project ahead of schedule, city officials said. It was funded through federal bridge replacement money, a freight mobility grant from the state and city funds.

In another traffic change, city officials said that the intersection of Nevada Street and Lincoln Road will be closed on Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for paving work.

Alternate routes would involve Magnesium Road, Crestline Street, Francis Avenue or Addison Street.
