Centennial Trail Realignment at Gateway Park

Status
Funded in 2009
WWRP Applicant: Spokane County Parks & Rec WWRP Category: Trails WWRP Grant: $197,974 Applicant Match: $197,974 Project Type: Development County: Spokane  Legislative District: 4th 

The Spokane County Department of Parks, Recreation and Golf will use this grant to realign part of the Centennial Trail to pass safely beneath the new Spokane Road Bridge. The realignment will eliminate two dangerous crossings and perfect an incomplete link. More than 1.75 million people used the trail in 2007. This realignment will eliminate the trail’s intersections near the Interstate 90 on and off ramp at the entrance to Gateway Park. It also will eliminate its shared parking entrance with the Washington Department of Transportation’s Visitor's Center and county dog park in Gateway Park. Traffic is increasing in this area. Moving the Centennial Trail now will eliminate a future conflict with the state’s plans for a new freeway interchange on the property. The county will contribute $197,974 in cash and donations of cash and labor. (08-1332)
