The micro-surfacing of Spokane’s roads begins in a major way this week.
Work will begin today on Wall Street between Wellesley and Francis avenues, and on Washington Street between Indiana and Buckeye avenues, where crews will apply a very thin layer of “micro-seal” asphalt after grinding down existing paint striping. It is applied curb to curb and dries in about four hours.
Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and the roads will be completely closed to traffic.
On Friday, Bernard Street between 14th and 29th avenues will undergo similar work.
County crews are doing the same procedure south of the city, on Helena Street between 57th and 63rd avenues, Crestline Street between 57th and 63rd, and on 63rd between Helena and Crestline. Work will occur on Wednesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
