Spokane River Floaters
For the safety of river users, the Spokane River beneath the Sullivan Road Bridge in the Valley is closed to river boat traffic immediately until further notice. Increased water flow has caused the river to rise, reducing the clearance between the river and the underside of the temporary work bridge erected as part of the southbound Sullivan Road Bridge replacement project.
Warning signs have been placed at boat launch and takeout locations upstream of the Sullivan bridge and on buoys at each side of the river upstream of the work area. A buoy line across the river just upstream of the bridge also alert river users to the closure and guide them to the mandatory takeout point on the north bank.
The rest of the river remains open for floating and wade fishing!
