In July of 2016, the City was the recipient of a two day on-site technical assistance grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). This event brought together businesses, residents, and neighborhoods to work with national design experts in the transportation field. The project focused along the area where the existing Interstate 90 will intersect with the new North South Corridor to generate ideas about how design solutions could enhance the transportation connections in the area.
As the North Spokane Corridor is now fully funded, the Eastern Region Office of WSDOT will be working with the local community on further design and construction of the facility until its completion in 2029. The timing of the Every Place Design Challenge was beneficial in assisting the community in generating initial ideas and concepts as the community and neighborhoods begin to contribute to further design details in future project phases.
“The Everyplace Counts process was an excellent beginning of conversations about how transportation facilities can enhance the livability of the community while preserving the vital movement of people and freight.”- Mike Gribner, WSDOT Eastern Region Administrator.
More information on the North Spokane Corridor is available on the following WSDOT NSC project website.
Information on how you can be involved in the design of future phases of the North Spokane Corridor will be coming in 2017.
