Ray-Freya Alternatives Analysis

Transportation planning is now under way to analyze the capacities on several major arterials on the South Hill. The project will focus on the Ray, Freya and Regal corridors. The intent is to look for alternatives to the Ray-Freya Crossover project, which had historically been part of the City's 6-Year Arterial Street Plan, but was removed in 2017. The Ray-Freya Crossover would have moved traffic from Ray at 37th to Freya, running near Ferris High School, and was designed to ease traffic congestion. City staff is looking at other transportation improvements that could streamline traffic flow in the area.

During the past few months City of Spokane staff held two online meetings to share the study results with the public and refine the alternatives. A final report is now available. The Spokane City Council endorsed the report's findings in Resolution 2021-0093, approved in November of 2021.

The recommended projects will be added to the 20-year street projects list and incorporated into the Bicycle Plan. Eventual construction work would be partially funded through Transportation Impact Fees, and the City would seek additional construction funding as needed.
