Sprague Avenue Rebuild Phase 2B starts today - April 19

Monday, April 19, 2021

Work on the Sprague Avenue Rebuild (phase 2B) will begin in this spring. This project is designed to make long-desired improvements, including rebuilding Sprague Avenue between Division Street and Grant Street, repairing/replacing water and sewer mains, upgrading sidewalks, lighting, bus stops, and installing landscaping.

Due to the depth and breadth of the work required, Sprague Avenue between Division Street and Grant Street will be closed completely to traffic for the duration of the project. This means any business access on Sprague between Grant and Division will also be closed, but the alley north of Sprague Avenue will be open and accessible via Grant Street. Public parking will be maintained on all side streets.

Foot traffic access to businesses within the work zone will be maintained.

Detour Routes

During construction, Sprague Avenue will be closed to all traffic from Division Street to Grant Street. Local business traffic can access businesses via 1st Avenue and Grant Street. Westbound truck and through traffic can use 2nd Avenue and Sherman Street. Eastbound truck and through traffic can use 3rd Avenue and Sherman Street.
