Riverside Ave. Extension Workshop Reminder

A reminder that a second workshop to discuss the Riverside Avenue Extension Project in the University District is tomorrow, May 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Riverpoint Campus Academic Center, Rm. 20, 600 N. Riverpoint Blvd.

The workshop is hosted by the City of Spokane and will be led by MIG, Inc., a consultant who worked on the Downtown Plan and other local projects. Participants will learn about the scope of the project, construction details, and have an opportunity to provide input. Input will center around design elements of the project and how this project will combine and connect with other projects planned for the area.

The Riverside Avenue Extension Project will extend Riverside around the southern border of the Riverpoint Campus within the University District. The project creates a more contained and campus-like area for students and faculty, improving pedestrian access and addressing safety concerns. The City has received federal and state dollars to complete this work.
