The City of Spokane is seeking your comments on the annual update of its Six-Year Comprehensive Streets Program. Comments will be accepted through Thursday, June 4, and the City Council will consider adoption of the plan on Monday, June 22.

“The Six-Year Streets Program is an important part of planning for our future,” says Katherine Miller, the City’s Director of Integrated Capital Management, which develops the scope, schedule and budget for capital projects for the City’s streets, water, and wastewater systems. “The City is committed to improving its overall street system, accommodating multiple modes of transportation and integrating with water, wastewater, and private utility needs.”

Every year, the City updates this program, which details the capital street projects it plans to complete during the coming six years. The new program includes projects planned in years 2021 through 2026. State law requires that the City adopt an updated plan by July 1 of each year.

The full plan is found on the City’s web site. New projects being added to the plan, along with projects that were completed and removed from the plan are found here. Comments can be sent to More information on the plan is found here.

The City complements its capital street work with a significant street maintenance program. In April, the City announced that it will invest an additional $10 million in street maintenance work in 2020 and 2021 to help support the local economy during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
