Open House To Address Gap In Centennial Trail On Mission Avenue

The City of Spokane will hold an open house to update citizens on a study that is considering alternatives to address a gap in the Centennial Trail as it cross East Mission Avenue at North Perry Street. The open house is Wednesday, April 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Assembly Room at the Northeast Community Center, 4001 N. Cook St.
The goal of the study is to identify, develop, and evaluate alternatives to separate the Centennial Trail from motorized traffic, improve pedestrian mobility at the Mission Avenue crossing, and close the trail gap at that location. Alternatives that have been considered include tunnels, bridges, and at-grade crossings.
The open house will include information on the preferred alternatives going forward and allow citizens to provide input.
The Centennial Trail runs along the Spokane River beginning at Nine Mile Falls, crossing over the Washington/Idaho state line, and ending at Higgins Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene. A number of gaps along the trail remain.
