Adams & Wellesley Sidewalk Improvement Project Meeting

Mark your calendar for a community meeting to learn more about a Spokane Valley project to improve sidewalks for Adams Road and Wellesley Avenue. The meeting is Thursday, Mar. 21 from 5:30-7:00pm at Trentwood Elementary School library room, 14701 E. Wellesley Ave.
Public Works staff members will discuss the details of the projects, planned for this summer, which call for:

• Adding sidewalk and curb ramps to the west side of Adams between Trent and Wellesley and the north side of Wellesley between Sullivan and just past Isenhart;

• Curb ramp improvements on the southeast corner of Adams and Wellesley; and

• Improvements at the crosswalks on the south side of Wellesley at Moore and Isenhart.

The work is tentatively scheduled to begin in June and is estimated to take about 4 weeks to complete. The project is fully funded by Safe Routes to School State Funding (83.3%) and the Spokane Valley Stormwater Management Fund (16.7%).

There will also be an opportunity at the meeting to review the expected traffic impacts involving some street and intersection closures, narrowed lanes, detours, and restrictions to pedestrian and driveway access. Those affected will be notified in advance and access to businesses will remain available.
