Valley's Transportation Improvement Program To Focus On Road Preservation

Members of the public will be able to comment on Spokane Valley's six-year Transportation Improvement Program at tonight's City Council meeting but council members want people to know most of the work is going to center around road-preservation rather than brand-new capital projects.

That’s because city staff – due to council direction earlier in the year – is attempting to fulfill a mandate to set money aside to improve and maintain existing city roadways. That means less of an emphasis on adding sidewalks or bike lanes or other projects that add capacity.
The Spokane Valley News Herald has the details.
