Park Road Reconstruction Project Open House

Spokane Valley staff next week will host an open house to give citizens and businesses an opportunity to discuss the design and potential impacts of the proposed Park Road Reconstruction Project.

The project will take place between Indiana and Broadway Avenue on Park Road. The entire street from Indiana to Broadway will be restriped to a single lane in each direction with bike lanes and a center turn lane.

The intersection at Park and Broadway will be repaved with concrete, and a right turn lane from westbound Broadway onto Park northbound may be added. Concrete will also be installed at the Park and Mission intersection.

Storm water drainage improvements will be made and sidewalks repaired or upgraded to Americans with Disabilities Act standards throughout the entire project area.

Currently, City engineers do not have a set timeline for this project. Dates for construction will be determined as property right-of-way and funding is acquired.

Your participation and comments at the Open House will help lessen the impact of future construction on residents and businesses. Staff and City Officials will be on hand to answer any of your questions and explain project details. More information can be found here.

The meeting is Monday, October 3 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the Commons Area at Seth Woodard Elementary.
