Some Items From The City Of Spokane

- An open house for the Post St. from Maxwell to Cleveland avenues project has been set for Tuesday, Feb. 15, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at Corbin Senior Center, Upper North Classroom, 827 W. Sinto Ave. Citizens and businesses are encouraged to attend to learn about traffic impacts and construction dates.

- Work to prepare vacant warehouses at Division and Riverside for demolition is set to begin Monday, Feb. 14 to make room for the new Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

This project will build a new street through the University District, improving traffic flow for motorists and increasing safety in the heart of the Riverpoint Campus. The street will extend east from the intersection of Division St. and Riverside Ave., curving north near the eastern campus border then connecting to Spokane Falls Blvd. just before the Trent Ave. Bridge.

Construction is slated to begin later in the spring and take about four months to complete. Once completed, the new boulevard will have bike lanes, streets, and an elevated median. The $3.76 million project is funded by federal and local funds.
