City completes Thor-Freya construction project

SPOKANE, Wash. — The city has completed the Thor-Freya construction project, and the corridor and I-90 exit ramp are back open.

Thor between Sprague and Second is reduced to one lane for snow removal, but is expected to open by Tuesday.

The project involved rebuilding the asphalt streets with concrete to provide a more stable and durable surface for heavy loads and higher traffic volumes.

The city also replaced old water pipes during the project.

“This was one of the largest Public Works projects the City tackled in 2022 and brings significant improvements to the area as preparations continue for future North South Corridor work by WSDOT,” says Public Works Director Marlene Feist. “We appreciate the patience of the community and are happy to be able to have it back open.”

The eight-month-long project was supposed to be finished by October, but supply chain issues, labor challenges, and weather caused some setbacks.

The city says drivers should also be prepared for intermittent lane closures for final detail work.
