SPOKANE, Wash.-- Construction on a main arterial on Spokane’s South Hill has been an inconvenience to drivers for nearly two months now.
Now, crews say work around 29th Avenue will go on longer than expected.
There isn’t a question about it. Work on 29th was desperately needed. Potholes on the road damaged cars as they drove over the pavement.
Despite the necessity, road closures have been difficult for neighbors, nearby businesses and hundreds of drivers.
The portion from Grand to Bernard was scheduled to be completed by the end of the month. That date has been pushed back until the end of September. Gas and water lines caused crews some trouble.
The whole project, fixing up Grand to High Drive, should be finished next year. It was originally expected to begin by next week. Crews decided not to start anything they cannot finish before winter.
Something for travelers to note: starting on Sept. 4, 29th and Bernard will be closed for three weeks.
