Chris Malloy, working with Continental Contractors, uses a slope laser to check the grade of an area being excavated that will become an extension of the Spokane section of the Centennial Trail in Kendall Yards.

The most significant expansion of the Centennial Trail in two decades will stretch the prized bike path and walkway from Riverfront Park west along the Spokane River gorge near Kendall Yards.

Most of the trail follows the course of the river until the route becomes a puzzle as it leaves Riverfront Park and joins city streets for 3.5 miles until restarting as a scenic asphalt ribbon near the T.J. Meenach Bridge.

Closing at least a portion of this car-filled trail gap has been a yearslong goal of trail advocates and city officials. Jonathon Brunt, SR

Do you enjoy the Centennial Trail? Which portion do you most use?
