SPOKANE RIVER -- When the spring runoff subsides and more paddlers turn their attention to the Spokane River, they'll be pleasantly surprised to see the improvements the City of Spokane Valley has been making to the Spokane River access site on north side of the new Barker Bridge.
 
The site has been regraded, erosion measures taken, trees and shrubs planted.
 
"All that's left is to have it seeded and put up signs," said Terry Miller of the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club, which donated $3,500 to the access project.
