Post Falls To Upgrade Spokane Street

Let the revitalization of Spokane Street begin. Contractor Cameron-Reilly has started work on a $1.8 million urban renewal project in the busy Post Falls corridor from Interstate 90 to the Spokane River bridge. The project, intended to ease traffic and create a long-awaited city center, will include landscaped medians, lighting, on-street parking in some areas on the east side of Spokane and new sidewalks and curbs. "It will take 60 working days to compete the project," said Tom Lien, urban renewal agency executive director, referring to the completion in late September. There will be intermittent lane closures throughout the construction period. Work will start on the south end of the corridor. New sidewalks will be constructed on one side of the street at a time, leaving access to the other side/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you consider this a good step in growing, evolving Post Falls?
