Two Spokane County Public Meetings Scheduled

Spokane County's Engineering and Roads Department is holding one Public Meeting and one Open House this month.

On Wednesday, October 19, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the proposed Wall, Waikiki, and Mill Corridor improvements during a public meeting about this important arterial route. The meeting is at Brentwood Elementary (406 W. Regina Road) at 6:30 p.m. A formal presentation about the improvements will be followed by a question and answer period.

On Tuesday, October 25th, the topic of an Open House will be the Little Spokane Drive Bridge Replacement Project at Christian Life Church (14011 N. Little Spokane Drive) from 4-7 p.m.

The Little Spokane Drive Bridge needs to be replaced due to its deteriorating condition. The new bridge will provide a roadway section that carries two 12-foot lanes, with 4-foot shoulders and a barrier-protected 10-foot wide “shared use path” that will connect to the Little Spokane River pathway system. The project is scheduled to begin in spring of 2012 with the bridge replacement completed sometime in fall of 2012. The reconstruction of the intersection and approach roadway will be complete in summer of 2013.
