County Gets Grant To Realign Centennial Trail

The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office has awarded the Spokane County Parks and Recreation Department a grants for $197,974 to realign part of the Centennial Trail.

That will pay for 50% of the estimated construction costs to realign the Centennial Trail at Gateway Park near the Washington-Idaho border. The work is scheduled for 2010 as the County Engineer replaces the old I-90 bridge that spans the Spokane River at Stateline. This project will realign the trail under the new bridge on the south bank of the river, and will also eliminate two dangerous at-grade crossings on the Centennial Trail.
