SPOKANE-- One construction project in Spokane is sending traffic onto normally quiet, residential streets. Neighbors say the increase in traffic is causing major issue around 29thStreet.

Neighbors say the road's pot holes could pop tires.

Home owners living on the side streets around 29th say an increase in traffic has them on edge. They say neighborhoods like this one are filled with little kids not used to so many cars going by. Speeding is also a big concern.

Construction from grand to Bernard is on schedule and will be complete by the end of August. Once that's finished, crews will start begin repairs on 29th from Bernard to High Drive. That's expected to be done by October.

The work includes reconstructing the road, replacing a water main and restriping bike lanes.

The city says they have gotten complaints about speeding on residential streets.

They urge drivers to remember, the speed limit on streets like this is 25 miles per hour.
