Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.
The City of Spokane will use this grant to rehabilitate the Don Kardong Pedestrian Bridge located within the downtown core of the City of Spokane, on mile 22 of the Spokane River Centennial Trail. These improvements extend the life of the bridge by replacing the bridge decking and timber framing, increase pedestrian safety by installing new pedestrian scale lighting, and enhance the bridge aesthetics & accessibility by replacing existing guardrail and scenic overlooks with contemporary, ADA compliant material & design.
