I90 Overpass Public Workshop

Spokane Valley will host a public workshop next week to disucss a proposed overpass crossing Interstate-90 along or near University Rd. The aim of the overpass is to improve car, bike and pedestrian access. As part of the University Rd. Overpass Study, Public Works staff want to hear what community members think about the project. The workshop is Wednesday, April 17 from 6-8 pm at the Spokane Valley Fire Administration Building, 2120 N. Wilbur Road.
Public Works staff members will discuss and present details on:
• The goals of the study;
• Types of crossings, estimated cost, environmental impact, and the feasibility of an overpass;
• The most current findings on traffic counts and patterns;
• Possible crossing locations;
• Improvement ideas for existing crossings; and
• Interviews from land owners, business people and agency staff.

Everyone is welcome to participate and share their ideas about the project and get answers to questions, so show up with some thoughts in mind.
