Appleway Trail Open House

The completed section of the Appleway Trail near University.
An open house on the Appleway Trail is focused on the section of the trail between Sullivan and Corbin. The open house is Wednesday, October 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Commons room at Greenacres Middle School, 17409 E. Sprague Avenue. An overview presentation will be made at 7 p.m. with the remainder of the meeting focused on answering questions and gathering input on the project.

Construction of this section of the Appleway Trail is planned for Spring/Summer of 2017, with the section from Pines to Evergreen also anticipated for construction in 2017.  Design and construction of the section from Evergreen to Sullivan is currently scheduled for 2019/2020.

Eventually, the trail will be extended westward from University to connect with the new City Hall and Balfour Park.  When completed, the length of the Appleway Trail will be approximately five and a half miles, and will connect all the way to Liberty Lake.
