The Spokane Regional Transportation Council is (SRTC) is proposing to invest almost $800 million into the local transportation system in the next several years and is holding an open house on Tuesday, September 19, 4-6pm at 421 W Riverside Ave (Paulsen Center), Ste. 504 (flyer) to give members of the public an idea of what projects that would fund.
Every year, SRTC updates the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) with projects and programs jurisdictions within Spokane County plan to build or implement during the upcoming four years. The draft 2018-2021 can be viewed at https://www.srtc.org/transportation-improvement-program/. It includes $789,399,322 in transportation investments. That will fund 106 projects. Three of the major projects will be highlighted at the open house. Presentations start at 4:30 p.m. and will cover:
- Spokane Transit’s Central City Line
- Spokane County’s Bigelow Gulch/Forker Connector projects
- Spokane City’s Sunset Boulevard projects
Staff from SRTC, Spokane Transit and the Washington State Department of Transportation will be on hand to answer questions. If you can’t make it to the open house can still share your thoughts. Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to SRTC or phoned in to (509) 343-6370.
