Freya bridge open to traffic

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.
