Now That Money Has Been Dedicated to It, When Will The NSC be Completed?

The State Legislature recently passed a transportation package that increases the gas tax and dedicates money from it to a couple local projects. One of those projects is completion of the North Spokane Corridor (NSC). Now the question is, when will that happen?

An article in today's Spokesman-Review looks at the history of the NSC as well as when it is expected to be completed, now that money is available.

Just hope BNSF will finally get an agreement with WSDOT so they can get to the river before 2030. They want to lease the ground to WSDOT for 99 years.

That would be nice. Sometimes working with the railroads can take some patience.
