The next two weekends, 18.–19. March and 25–26 March, we are working on the S Spokane St ramp to the Spokane St Swing Bridge. To help manage freight traffic backups and improve traffic flow near the terminals, we are reconfiguring the westbound lanes to create a longer area for merging and changing lanes.
