North Spokane Corridor Future Map

The City of Spokane is excited to be sharing an update about the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) project. In 2015, the Washington State Legislature allocated $879 million as part of the Connecting Washington package. The bulk of construction will be completed between 2019 and 2027.

The final summary report from the Every Place Counts Design Challenge Event held in Spokane in July of 2016 was recently released by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The citizens and stakeholders at this meeting helped explore concepts for the projects design. Some of the concepts related to the North Spokane Corridor included:

  • Explore designing specific areas underneath and adjacent to the highway with active community involvement to incorporate neighborhood culture, art, and history
  • Explore using and programming under-utilized open space with a year-round community  activity calendar
  • Begin detailed design and construction of the Children of the Sun Trail
  • Create a connected network of parks and trails to form an open space system and recreational loop. Connecting neighborhoods along the NSC and I-90 corridors.
  •  Incorporate enhanced programming for all ages, including educational, historic and cultural civic art features
  • Incorporate the functions of air and water quality, wildlife corridors, and tree canopy coverage through streets and open spaces into the design.

WSDOT is in the early stages of creating designs for the North Spokane Corridor’s future construction. As the agency starts mapping out the project design and construction sequence for the remaining five miles of freeway, there will be new opportunities for public input and involvement.  Watch the North Spokane Corridor website and this blog for details. WSDOT has also formed the NSC Executive Advisory Committee to gather ideas from community leaders. Details on their Wednesday, February 15 meeting can be found online.

If you are interested in receiving email updates please let us know. Email Julie Happy, NBS Communications Manager at jhappy@spokanecity.org using the subject title, NSC Updates and we will add you to our email list.
