I blogged yesterday about some local bike and pedestrian safety projects that were just notified that they received state and federal funding. Well, Spokane County has an additional one that I just found out about.
The Pasadena Park Elemtary School Pathway Project received $451,992. It will construct a six foot wide path from the school to the adjacent church for a safe student pickup location, flashing crossing beacons and a six foot wide sidewalk along both sides of Upriver Drive. The sidewalk will stretch from the school crosswalk to west Dick Road on the north side of Upriver Drive and west to Maringo Drive on the south side of Upriver Drive. These improvements wil allow 34 students to walk to school that couldn’t before.
