County engineers want to get the word out that they’re shutting down part of a popular south Spokane recreational bike ride route. Starting in April, Valley Chapel Road will be closed to all traffic 1/4 mile north of Spangle Creek Road to replace a bridge. Construction is expected to be complete by November ’08. Please notify any bicyclists you know so alternate routes may be found. For more information, visit the County Engineering and Roads website.
Some bicyclists we know say this is a very popular ride route and this closure will effect hundreds of rides. What’s your opinion? Do you use this route? And if so, why this particular route?
