Latah Bridge Rehabilitation Public Open House

It appears that December is the new 'It' month for public meetings, based on the sheer volume of meeting announcements I've posted here recently. And here's another one: The City of Spokane is partnering with CH2M Hill to develop rehabilitation solutions for the Latah Bridge, also known as Sunset Bridge or High Bridge. The study team will host a public open house on Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 4-7 p.m. at the Woodland Center at Finch Arboretum, 3404 W. Woodland Blvd.

Study staff want to hear from drivers, bikers or walkers who use the bridge, in order to ensure the long-term vitality of the critical link the Latah Bridge provides in the region’s transportation system. The purpose of this study is to provide the City with an understanding of the current condition of the bridge and develop a plan on how to rehabilitate it. Once completed, the study will allow the City to seek funding for the next steps.

Yes, it would be a big project to rehabilitate a bridge like this but I'm sure the government would know what to do with it and hopefully get some cooperation from the people...
