SPOKANE, Wash. - While Mayor David Condon was unable to attend, several other managers and directors for the city kicked off the 2019 construction season with a briefing.
Scott Simmons, the public works director of Spokane, said the 2019 season will be another busy one with about $50 million of construction planned. The planned projects will aim toward improving roadways, protect the river, and replace water and sewer lines.
" As part of our strategic plan, we're working to improve the experience for the traveling public, from motorists, to bicyclists, pedestrians to mass transit riders," Simmons said.
The briefing was held at Euclid and Green in north Spokane, a significant location, Simmons said, because an ongoing project in the area will be moving water out of the way for the north/south corridor.
In addition to continued work on the North South Corridor, other construction projects that can be expected during the 2019 season include:
