North Bank Bikeway Proposal

With ongoing redevelopment of the North Bank near downtown Spokane, bikeways have been identified as an important way to connect residents and visitors with destinations throughout the district. A proposed amendment to the Bicycle Master Plan, currently under consideration, would plan for future bike lanes on Boone Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and Sharp Avenue through the North Bank from Lincoln to Division, as shown below. The City of Spokane would like your feedback on this proposal.

Background

The North Bank is the area north of the Spokane River across from Riverfront Park and Downtown Spokane. The area hosts a wide variety of businesses, restaurants, and venues such as the Spokane Arena and the upcoming Sportsplex, currently under construction. As part of the public planning process for the North Bank Subarea Plan, area residents and businesses have identified bikeways as an important way to accommodate short trips within the area and to nearby neighborhoods.

Proposed Bikeways

This proposed amendment to Spokane's Bicycle Master Plan would propose a new east-west bike lane connection primarily on Boone Ave, complementing existing bike routes already in place through the area.

  • Bike lanes on Boone Avenue would connect east from Lincoln Street to the north side of Gonzaga Campus via a bike lane connection on Atlantic Street and Sharp Avenue.
  • Funding for final design, construction and specialized maintenance equipment and programming would be required to carry out any of these concepts.
  • Conceptual drawings and images are available below. These images are for concept planning purposes only.
