Open house to discuss Centennial Trail gap

Calling all Centennial Trail users: Here's a meeting you won't want to miss. The City of Spokane is conducting an open house to present seven preliminary alternatives to address a gap in the Centennial Trail as it crosses East Mission Avenue at North Perry Street. The open house is designed to gather public input and will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 8, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Stevens Elementary School in the multi-purpose room, 1717 E. Sinto Avenue.
The Centennial Trail runs along the Spokane River beginning at Nine Mile Falls, crossing over the Washington/Idaho state line, and ending at Higgins Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene. A number of gaps along the trail remain. This meeting will address a feasibility study for an improved crossing for pedestrians and bicyclists at Mission Avenue.
That crossing has never been an easy one. It's an extremely busy arterial with Perry and Upriver Drive connecting. Also, the BNSF Railway line running north of Spokane crosses Mission and the trail at Mission Avenue.

The open house will provide project scope, highlight the issues and present preliminary alternatives. The City hopes to have a large turnout at the open house to gather public opinion about the options that are available.
