Editorial Calls For Valley To Make Better Transportation Plan

Last week, the City of Spokane Valley announced they had come up with a compromise in the debate over the Sprague-Appleway couplet: the section of the one-way alignment east of Dishman-Mica Road will be restored to two-way streets, while the section to the west will remain as a couplet.

An editorial in today's Spokesman-Review says the Valley needs a better 'vision' for transportation in it's jurisdiction to develop its' identity as a city.
