The Freya Street bridge, which had been closed since last August, is open for this morning’s commute.
The bridge reopened Tuesday evening after 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 today from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for paving work.
Alternate routes would involve Magnesium Road, Crestline Street, Francis Avenue or Addison Street.
