Indeed it has! I drove across it westbound a couple hours ago and got a quick and dirty video:

Looks like there's all new signs and barriers and part of the west approach was repaved during the closure.
Unfortunately this means that the old button copy signs are no longer up (though I happen to know that SDOT was already planning to replace those in early 2020 before the closure).

jakeroot:
I know the Spokane Street Viaduct uses those WSDOT-style sign gantries. Is that also an SDOT standard these days?

Bruce:
The lower (swing) bridge closed four days ago during the ice storm and won't be reopening for another 2 weeks due to repairs.
