The City of Spokane is developing a project to rebuild Riverside Avenue in downtown Spokane between Division and Monroe streets. Much of this section of Riverside is included in the route of Spokane Transit Authority’s Central City Line (CCL), a planned 6-mile bus rapid transit route, and an improved street is needed.
As part of the planning process, the City would like to explore options for Riverside and is seeking feedback from citizens on possible features that could enhance the street’s function, appearance and economic vitality. Currently, the City is considering how traffic should be configured along Riverside, specifically looking at parking, lane configurations, and CCL stop locations.
There are two ways to learn about the project options and provide feedback :
- Attend a public open house on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the STA Plaza Rotunda, 701 W. Riverside Ave., and fill out an online survey.
- Review an online presentation and then fill out the online survey at the end. (Presentation also can be reached at https://my.spokanecity.org/riverside-avenue/.)
Construction on the Riverside project likely would be done over several construction seasons and could begin as early 2019. Additional outreach on other project aspects will continue through the first half of 2018.
