I ran out of time to blog about this yesterday, but I did attend the City of Spokane’s Second Avenue meeting on Wednesday evening. Starting in late March of 2011, the City plans a project to rehabilitate another part of Second Avenue, from Howard to Arthur streets.
When I posted the original meeting announcement, someone asked if there are going to be bike lanes on this section when the project is complete. The current answer is no. This project is a 10-year Street Bond project, meaning it will be reconstructed curb-to-curb, but other ammenities will not be added unless extra money is found somewhere.
The City doesn’t have information on this project online anywhere, but City Spokesperson Ann Deasy said she’s open to emails from anyone who has questions, so ask away.
