The Spokane City Council on Monday approved makeover plans for three North Side intersections.
The council signed an agreement with the state Department of Transportation that allows the state to add a left turn lane on Maple Street for turning onto Francis Avenue. The DOT plans to streamline the three-way intersection between Driscoll Boulevard, Nine Mile Road and Assembly Road.
Council members also agreed to let the DOT add a right turn lane on Francis for turning onto Indian Trail Road.
State and federal taxpayer dollars will be used for the three projects that total about $460,000.
