City Accepting Online Feedback on North Monroe Project

The City of Spokane is asking for input from citizens on elements of a project to improve North Monroe Street that is planned for construction in 2018. The project runs from a little north of Indiana to Kiernan near the top of the Garland hill.

You can view an online presentation about the project and then fill out a survey about the various elements of the project at the end. Feedback will be accepted through Monday, Feb.6.

Additionally, a public open house is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 26, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church, 806 W. Knox. More information on the project is found on the City’s web site.

The project includes a street reconfiguration to two travel lanes with a center turn lane, down from four tight travel lanes and a narrow center lane. The project will include curb bumpouts at intersections that reduce pedestrian crossing distances, enhanced crossings at three locations with flashing yellow beacons, new lighting, and a climbing lane on the hill. The current tight on-street parking will be widened for easier use and spaces will be added.  Sidewalks will be widened.
