If you drive through downtown Spokane right now, some streets have more cones than cars, especially on Lincoln St. and Monroe St. In our story Tuesday night, several people told KHQ it's nearly impossible to get across the street in some spots and businesses say that's hurting their bottom line. KHQ Local News Reporter Cynthia Johnson brought those concerns to the city and got some results.
Monroe & 1st: The northside will have taped off construction area with a clear pedestrian crossing. The sidewalk closed signs will be removed.
Monroe & Sprague: The city is still trying to determine what to do here, but is considering a possible south side crossing.
Monroe & Riverside: The sidewalk closed sign on the southeast corner will be removed.
Lincoln & 1st: The sidewalk closed sign will be removed from the southeast corner and a pedestrian path will be put going east and west on the south side.
Lincoln & Sprague: The sidewalk closed signs will be removed from the southeast and north east corners. A clear pedestrian crossing will be added to the south side running east and west.
