City seeks public input on Sprague Avenue Project

The City of Spokane is seeking public feedback on reconstruction planned for Sprague Avenue through the University District.

The Sprague Avenue project will reconstruct pavement, sidewalks, and utilities. Sewer, stormwater, and water utilities will all be updated as well.

The project will run on Sprague Avenue between Bernard and Scott Street. Pavement in the project was last repaired in 1985, and some utilities were installed over 100 years ago.

The project will also help to improve travel conditions. Currently, the roadway west of Sherman Street has narrow travel lanes and sometimes cars use the sidewalks for parking, making it hard for pedestrians to use. The proposed options for Sprague would re-use the space of either a travel lane or a parking lane to widen the remaining lanes and sidewalk.

You can view the various options for the project here. You can also take a public survey, which will be open through April 28, on the same page.
