SPOKANE – Ray Street re-opened to drivers in South Spokane on Friday afternoon. Construction detoured drivers for about two weeks.

The City of Spokane's Water Department will pay $1.8 million to replace the station's aging pumps. They city said the station will be more energy efficient once construction is complete
Crews needed to access water mains under Ray Street to complete the project.
