BRIDGE to Re-open at Appleway Rd -This Thursday November 17th

The bridge over the Spokane River at Appleway Road, West of the Stateline Village is scheduled to open tomorrow, November 17th, 2011 at approximately 9:00 a.m.  After two construction seasons, the new bridge is opening and is reportedly ahead of schedule and under budget.  The bridge was designed to connect to the Centennial trail, but that portion won't be completed until 2012.

As reported by ITD in Today's News Briefing, the estimated total cost of the project is $8,000,000 – which is $9,500,000 below the original project estimate.  80-percent of the project was paid for by Federal Bridge Replacement funds with 20-percent coming from the Spokane County Road Fund.
