University District Bridge project open house

Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 10:54 a.m.

The BSNF railroad bisects the University District and separates the southern commercial and multi-use area from the northern institutional area breaking up the connectivity between the two. The University District Bridge is a critical missing link for this developing corridor.

The University District Bridge is a pedestrian bicycle bridge over the BNSF corridor. Its intent is to create not only a fundamental north-south connection from the University District campus on the north side of the railroad tracks to the Sprague area and medical district on the south, but it will also create an iconic sense of place as well. Additionally, the bridge would be a key component to support future mixed use development in the Sprague area.

An open house is being held to announce progress on the University District Bridge project.

When: Tuesday, December 10

Time: 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Where: WSU Spokane's South Campus Facility Room 100 N (412 E Spokane Falls Boulevard).

You are invited to drop by any time between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to receive updates on the project and visit with project consultants and city staff.
