I would imagine there are some happy people in the halls of Spokane Valley City Hall today. It was announced last week that the city has received a $3.5 million Washington State Transportation Improvement Board grant for the replacement of the failing Sullivan Bridge. The city has already received $10 million in other grants for the project, which is expected to cost $19.7 million. Reporter Mike Prager has more details here.
