City Council Approves Purchasing Land for U-District Bridge

The potential bridge designs for the U-District bridge
Despite some controversy, the University District bicycle and pedestrian bridge inched closer to reality last night with the Spokane City Council approving spending nearly $1.7 million to purchase 20 parcels of land on which to build the bridge.

With engineering on the bridge complete and the land soon to be acquired, it's just a matter of actually building it now. But that could take a little longer as the state comes into play for that phase of the project. The Spokesman-Review has the details.
