North Spokane Corridor Receives $10M Grant

It's official- the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) project has received another $10 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) funds to continue work on the freeway in the vicinity of Hillyard.
The federal grant will pay for realignment of mainline and spur tracks of the BNSF Railway line in the vicinity of Francis Avenue and Hillyard and a one-mile extension into Hillyard of a pedestrian and bicycle trail that is part of the freeway project.

This is the second TIGER grant the NSC has received in recent years. The Spokesman-Review has the details.
