Appleway Bridge At Stateline To Open Thursday

Just got big news from Spokane County; the bridge over the Spokane River at Appleway Road and west of Stateline Village, ID will be reopened to traffic this Thursday, November 17th at approximately 9 a.m. And the best part is that it's opening ahead of schedule and under budget!

The new bridge is 42-feet wide and incorporates a separated pedestrian/bike path that was designed to connect with the Centennial Trail.

The estimated total cost of the project is $8,000,000 – which is $9,500,000 below the original project estimate. 80% of the project was paid for by Federal Bridge Replacement funds with 20% coming from the Spokane County Road Fund.
