Help Design A New Bridge

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is holding an open house to talk about bridges- in particular the design for a new bridge on State Route 290 just east of downtown Spokane. The Spokane River East Trent Bridge is slated to be replaced starting in 2019 so that means design work needs to start now.

The open house is Wednesday, June 22 at the Union Gospel Mission Recovery Center building at 1306 E. Trent. This is the new building at the southeast corner of Trent and Denver Streets (not the main mission building on Erie).  The open house hours are 4-7 p.m.

This is a very early opportunity to talk with engineers and explore design concepts for the project. The open house will not have a formal presentation but staff members will be available to answer questions and explain conepts.
