City backtracks, says Sprague Ave will fully reopen Wednesday morning

SPOKANE, Wash. — The City of Spokane is backtracking and now saying Sprague Ave will be fully open by Wednesday. 

The city prematurely sent a release on Sunday saying the final project was complete and the road had reopened. But, that wasn’t the case. 

The city said Monday evening there were construction items discovered that required attention, therefore delaying the full reopening. 

The revitalization project has taken four years. It has included street repairs, water and sewer main replacements, and sidewalk upgrades.
