Start The Countdown To Appleway Bridge Closure

You've only got a week left to use the Appleway Bridge over the Spokane River at Appleway Road and west of Stateline Village. The bridge was built in 1939 and is in poor condition. It will be closed on June 1 to be demolished and rebuilt. This two-year project will take until Spring/Summer 2012 to complete.

There's lots more information on this project on the Spokane County website, including a pretty handy detour map and information on a public meeting coming up in June. I'll post those details as we get closer to the meeting date.
