Public Meeting For New Secon Ave. Project Next Week

Mark your calendar, because the City of Spokane has your evening tied up on Wednesday, Nov. 17.

In 2011, the City of Spokane is planning a project to rehabilitate another part of Second Avenue, from Howard to Arthur streets. A public meeting will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 4:30 p.m. at the Spokane Public Library Downtown branch, 906 W. Main Ave., Room 1-A.

The meeting is aimed at teaching you about the project expected impacts to businesses and traffic.

Can we get bike lanes?

Not sure what the City has in store for that section of the roadway. I'm going to go to the meeting tomorrow night and see what they have in mind. I have a feeling that if it's not in the plans, it will come up, much like it did on the section of Second that is just being wrapped up. So, to make a short answer long, we'll have to wait and see.
