Big Meeting Friday To Discuss Stimulus Package Projects

The SRTC Board has continued their meeting from last Thursday, December 11 to this Friday, December 19 in order to invite area elected officials to discuss and comment on transportation projects that have been submitted for consideration as part of a potential transportation infrastructure stimulus package.

Congress is seriously considering an infrastructure investment bill to stimulate jobs and the economy. SRTC must deliver the Spokane Region list of proposed projects to Washington State Department Of Transportation no later than December 29.

Friday’s meeting starts at 9 a.m. in meeting rooms A, B, and C of Bay 1 at the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center, 404 N. Havana St., Spokane Valley. It will provide a great opportunity to discuss transportation projects and priorities as a region.

The public is welcome at all SRTC Board meetings so if you're interested, come join us!
