Another section of Sprague Avenue—from Bernard east to Scott within the South University District- is slated for improvements in the next few years. City of Spokane staff is collecting input and information from business and property owners, the neighborhood, and the public about what the project could include and how it can improve transportation and ultimately the vitality of the area. Citizens are invited to learn more about the project at a public open house:
- Date: Thursday March 29
- Time: 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
- Location: Pride Prep Charter School at 811 E. Sprague Ave.
The scoping work will look at lane configurations, streetscape improvements, lighting, signals, and stormwater work, along with the need to replace a water main and pavement. In particular, staff will have information about a potential left-turn lane at Browne, three traffic configuration options, and the possibility of incorporating bike lanes.
Currently, the City has funding for project scoping and then design, but not construction so it won’t happen until 2019 or later.
