Proposal Would Change Pedestrian Project & Restripe Crestline Street

There have been a couple changes suggested to our Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and we're looking for input on them.

The TIP is a document that identifies projects programmed to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).

The TIP is amended regularly as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change or remove from the Plan. The latest proposed amendment would make these changes:
  • ·  Modify the City of Spokane’s 2013 Downtown Pedestrian Improvements project to remove sidewalk bump-outs (a traffic calming measure used to extend the sidewalk to reduce the distance pedestrians have to cross a street) and apply state funds over two years.
  • ·         Restripe Crestline Street between Euclid and Francis from a four lane street into two lanes with a two-way left turn lane and bike lanes.


You can view all the details on the requested changes by clicking the image below to view it full size. It can also be viewed at www.srtc.org. If you have comments, get them to us by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 3, 2015. Comments can be submitted by emailing to contact.srtc@srtc.org, mailed to SRTC at 221 W. 1st Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
