The Spokane Regional Transportation Council is looking for input from the public on an amendment to the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program, which proposes adding three new projects to the program and modifying two already in the program.
The TIP is a document that identifies projects to be undertaken or constructed during the upcoming four years. It includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).
The TIP is updated throughout the year as SRTC’s member jurisdictions have projects to add, change, or remove from the program; often as funding becomes available or projects move toward being construction-ready.
Details on the five projects affected by the amendment are attached and include:
- Millwood Interurban Trail- A new project that will build a non-motorized shared bike/pedestrian trail through Millwood from Vista Road to Trent Avenue.
- Monroe Street Lane Reduction and Hardscape, Indiana Ave. to Chelan Avenue - The northern project limit was modified to be from Kiernan to 100 feet north of Chelan to split the projects into two phases. The total project cost was updated.
- Monroe Street Lane Reduction and Hardscape, Chelan Avenue to Kiernan Avenue - A new project was added to split this projects into two phases.
- Spokane Street Preservation, North- A new project to resurface and preserve six street segments over a two or three year period.
WSDOT Eastern Region ADA Project, Pedestrian Ramp Upgrades - The total cost of this project to bring pedestrian ramps up to standard was reduced from $1,339,487 to $484,526.
More information on both the 2017-2020 TIP and the proposed amendment can be found on the SRTC website at srtc.org/transportation-improvement-program. Hardcopies of both are available by calling 343-6370.
