SRTC staff is proposing an amendment to Horizon 2040, the Metropolitan
Transportation Plan (MTP), and we’re looking for your opinion on the idea.

Horizon 2040
is the area’s long-range transportation plan, a “blueprint” that guides how the
regional transportation system will develop through 2040. It is based on
projections for growth in population, housing and jobs and considers every mode
of transportation, such as private vehicles, public transit, bicycling,
walking, freight movement, rail and air travel.
The amendment
to Horizon 2040 adds three new City of Spokane projects. To be eligible for
funding, these projects are required to be included in the plan. The projects are:
·    Main Ave. – Browne St. to Division St.
Reconfigure three
lane arterial to two lanes with possible center lane angle parking, mid-block
pedestrian crossing and streetscape improvements.

·    North Monroe St.- Indiana Ave. to
Garland Ave
Reconfigure four lane arterial to one lane each direction with a center
two-way left turn lane, sidewalk and pedestrian improvements, curb extensions
and signal modifications at the intersection of Montgomery.

·    Maxwell Ave.- Maple St. to Washington
Reconfigure to
two lanes with a center two-way left turn lane.
An update to Horizon
2040’s Financial Plan has also been completed to ensure the plan is financially
constrained, and a few other updates made.

amendment to Horizon 2040 is available for review at A
