Warmer weather has crews from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and Inland Asphalt Company returning to work to finish repaving Spokane’s busiest north-south arterial — Division Street. Work will restart on Monday, April 4.
Crews will repave Division Street between Euclid Avenue and Francis Avenue. The majority of work will be scheduled for evening and overnight hours to avoid peak commute times. The work should take about 10 weeks to complete.
Crews paved the intersection of Division Street and Wellesley with concrete last season and then put the project on hold for the winter.
“This season, we’ll concentrate on the asphalt paving and sidewalk ramp upgrades,” said Keith Metcalf, Regional Administrator. “Last year, we partnered with the Spokane Transit Authority and city of Spokane on the concrete intersection. The concrete is more durable and can withstand the constant pounding from the stop-and-go traffic at this busy location.”
More than 43,000 vehicles travel on this portion of Division Street. It’s the main north-south route through Spokane and serves as US 2 and US 395.
