Last night Spokane Valley City Manager Mike Jackson announced that the city will be able to move ahead with the replacement of the west Sullivan Road bridge over the Spokane River. The city has been trying to come up with enough money to tear down the 1951 bridge and build a new one since 2008. The bottom line: the project should go out to bid this fall and construction should start in early 2014. I'll have more details in Thursday's Valley Voice. SR file photo.
