Martin Luther King Jr. Way through the University District is nearing completion and you’re invited to a street opening ceremony on Thursday, May 31, at 11 a.m. at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Pine St..

The new street will improve vehicular traffic flow and increase safety in the heart of the Riverpoint Campus. The street extends east from the intersection of Division St. and Riverside Ave., curving north near the eastern campus border then connects to Spokane Falls Blvd. just before the Trent Ave. Bridge. Additionally, bike lanes and an elevated median will be installed as part of the project.

The $3.76 million project is being funded by federal and local funds.
