Road Construction to End Soon

    After 10 years of increased property taxes, the voter approved $117 million program to fix Spokane’s worst city roads is coming to an end. Mayor David Condon is still debating whether or not to seek another bond for a follow up repair program. Condon prefers that the money would be spent towards a new city engineering program that would focus on pedestrian improvements, street amenities, bike lanes, and utility work. Future projects include increasing the number of main street storm drains, new water lines, and new pavement for sidewalks. Although some of these improvements have slightly inconvenienced our day to day travel, it sure is nice to have a city council that places such a strong emphasis on fixing public roads.
