What should the area around the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) look like when the new freeway is complete? That’s what the Washington State Department of Transportation is teaming up with Eastern Washington University to find out.
WSDOT and its partners created the NSC Place story map website and Facebook community to communicate with area residents, and to provide an opportunity for members of the public to share thoughts and opinions.
After more than 70 years of research, planning, legislation and community engagement, WSDOT is constructing the fully funded NSC in incremental phases. Once completed, in 2029, it will provide a corridor for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and freight, with connections to destinations both north and south.
In the meantime, during the next few years, communities in and around the NSC will be actively engaged in “creating places” as well as developing the remaining segment of the Children of the Sun Trail. The new story map provides “NSC Place” project updates, schedules, engagement opportunities, and engagement outcomes so check it out today and share your thoughts.
