A couple public meetings are coming up on January 25 that you may be interested in, depending on where you live and drive:
– A Sullivan Bridge Preliminary Design meeting is scheduled for Jan. 25 from 6-7:30 p.m. at CenterPlace Regional Event Center, 2426 N. Discovery Place in Spokane Valley.
Engineers and design consultants for the bridge replacement project will be on hand to go over preliminary plans and get public opinion on bridge appearance, options for routing traffic and maintaining business access, and ideas for minimizing impacts during construction.
Construction of a new southbound bridge is necessary due to cracking in the girders and the concrete driving surface. The bridge is closed for temporary repairs now that are expected to be complete around the end of February.
– Also on Jan. 25, Spokane County is hosting a public meeting on the Harvard Road widening project. The project has been revised to widen Harvard Road from Euclid to 2,000 feet north of Wellesley to a two lane section with shoulders and a separated shared use path on one side. Left turn lanes would be constructed at the Euclid and Wellesley avenues and a traffic signal installed at the Wellesley Ave. intersection.
The meeting is at the Otis Orchards Elementary School located at 22000 E. Wellesley Ave. between 5:30-8 p.m.
