Detours will be in place for drivers needing to use both roads, with closures lasting 24 hours a day. All lanes of SR 904 will be open. WSDOT's PRCC man- ager, Bob Westby, said other crossing closures are scheduled to take place over the next sev- eral weeks on the $7 mil- lion project. The Medical Lake-Four Lakes road crossing will be closed Nov. 17 - 18, followed by the Cheney-Spokane Road Nov. 17 - 19 and Meadow Lake Road Nov. 20 - 21. Westby said the proj- ect's contractor, Rail- Works, has a "rather ambitious" schedule to get all crossings along the line completed by the end of November. Weather permitting the final crossing work will be at Craig Road Nov. 20 - 21 and White Road Nov. 23 - 24. "That will take us right up to the Geiger Spur," Westby said. One crossing that will not need to be re- paired is the one at SR 904 and Betz Road in Cheney. Westby said that the tracks there are capable of handling heavier loads after be- ing upgraded during SR 904 repair work done over 10 years ago. Westby said those dates could change de- pending on the holidays and, more importantly, the availability of asphalt. The contractor is under a tight timeline to com- plete the .work in time for the grain transloader facility's scheduled corn- pletion'and opening in January 2016. Westby said the line could still service the Highline terminal even if repair work to a cou- ple crossings is delayed until spring. John McCal- lure can be reached at ] mac@cheneyfreepress. COm.
