Status
Funded
WWRP Applicant: Spokane Co Parks, Rec & Golf WWRP Category: Trails WWRP Grant: $197,974 Applicant Match: $197,974 Project Type: Development County: Spokane  Legislative District: 4th 

This project realigned part the Centennial Trail to pass safely beneath the new Appleway (Old "I-90") Bridge which was replaced in 2010. This realignment was critical to resolve two at-grade trail-and-road intersections near the I-90 on/off ramp at the entrance to Gateway Park and at the shared road-and-trail parking entrance to the DOT Visitor's Center and County Dog Park within Gateway Park. By coordinating with the County Engineer's Department, State Parks and DOT, County Parks secured a role in this project by ensuring the construction of a suitable under-pass to accommodate the trail. This project cempletely eliminated two dangerous crossings and perfected an "incomplete link" by removing a shared-road segment. The trail design also improved aesthetics along the first mile of the trail and provided ramp-access from the Appleway Bridge deck to connect the Greenacres neighborhood to the 69-mile interstate Centennial Trail.
