DSP Installs Downtown 'Wayfinding' System


I was out of town for about a week and all kinds of transportation stuff happened while I was gone! The Downtown Spokane Partnership got all high tech on us and started installing a wayfinding system throughout downtown. The first of the gigantic stickers was installed in front of the Red Lion Hotel at the Park a couple days ago just across the bridge from Riverfront Park. A total of 50 of them are going in, and they include a Quick Response code so that those with smartphones can scan them and bring the map up on their phones! Here are more pictures of the Red Lion one being installed.
