North Monroe Corridor Project Open House

The City of Spokane is hosting a public open house on Thursday, Jan. 26 from 4-7 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church, 806 W. Knox on a project to improve North Monroe Street between Indiana and Kiernan.

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

In addition to the open house, the City is developing an online feedback tool that describes the various elements of the project, and then provides a survey for citizens to fill out. The online tool is expected to be launched about a week prior to the public meeting.  More information on the project is found on the City’s web site
