SPOKANE, Wash. -- A project to increase the life of the Greene Street Bridge was underway over the weekend.
Through mid-October, the work will cause lane restrictions on the bridge over the Spokane River and on Greene Street between South Riverton Avenue and Upriver Drive.
The work on the bridge, which began Friday, is meant to improve the bridge’s load rating, allowing larger trucks and loads to use it. The project includes installing fiber-reinforced polymer to the bridge deck and floor beams.
While traffic impacts are expected through the middle of October, the project will continue until mid-November.
The $1.15 million project is funded by local sources, REET (Real Estate Excise Tax), and federal Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds.
