Here’s your chance to get on the North Spokane Corridor before everyone else does. After six years of construction, the first drivable link of the North Spokane freeway is complete. The roadway will be open to traffic between Francis/Freya and Farwell Road, approximately three and a half miles.
There will be a grand opening ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 22. And quite a party it will be. There will be walking tours, a ribbon cutting ceremony, a bike ride, free hot dogs, kids activities, a classic car parade, and great giveaways like water bottles, t-shirts, and more! Here’s more info on the where/when/how of this celebration.
But don’t party too hard, ’cause we need your help to get the rest of the freeway finished. The Inland Northwest Associated General Contractors of America has teamed up with the Spokane Area Good Roads Association and other partners on a campaign to encourage legislators to get the NSC the money required to finish it. Money has been the holdup for years on this project, but people involved are hoping the ‘Keep Spokane Moving’ campaign will help resolve that issueHere’s more info on this and how you can help. And get used to seeing that logo because organizers say this campaign is going to be a vocal one for at least the next couple years.
