An update a la Here's the Dirt (the former weekly SR business column tracking developments and building projects): The new medical school project, in the University District, has begun moving dirt around. Fences are being erected and crews are working full shifts.
The state gave Spokane one half of the $70 million it will cost to build the new building. WSU hopes to get the remaining $35 million in the next supplemental session.
Plans are to open the building for students in 2014.
