A road preservation project along Sullivan Road between Flora Pit Road and Trent Avenue is tentatively scheduled to begin April 22 and may take approximately seven or eight weeks to complete.
The project calls for:
- patch work and resurfacing on Sullivan from Flora Pit to Trent Avenue
- upgrading storm drainage, sidewalk ADA ramps, and signal loops; and
- installation of a stormwater swale in the grass strip in front of the Sullivan Park parking lot.
Expect Sullivan to be reduced to one lane in each direction at various times in the work area during daylight work hours between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Driveway access to businesses may be restricted for short periods of time during grinding and paving work. Alternative access will be available and businesses will be notified in advance.
Sullivan between Kiernan and Trent avenues will be closed during night hours, 11 p.m.-7 a.m. weekdays and 8 p.m.-5:30 a.m. weekends, in approximately the last week of May or first week of June for paving. A detour via Euclid Avenue and Flora Pit Road will be posted.
Access to and from Marietta Ave. may be restricted at times during daylight hours. Flaggers will direct traffic and/or detours will be posted.
The project is 90-percent funded by Spokane Valley Street Preservation funds and 10-percent funded by Spokane Valley stormwater funds.
Drivers are encouraged to observe the speed limits and use particular caution in the work area. Those whose destinations are outside the project area may wish to use alternative routes to avoid congestion.
