There will be an open house for the University District Bike Ped bridge on Thursday, May 22. You can drop in any time from 4:30 - 6:30 at the WSU Spokane's South Campus Facility Room 100 N. (412 E. Spokane Falls Boulevard) to get the latest updates. The project team will give a presentation twice during the open house; once at 4:45 and again at 5:45.
The BSNF railroad bisects the University District and separates the southern commercial and multi-use area from the northern institutional area breaking up the connectivity between the two. The University District Bridge is a critical missing link for this developing corridor.

The University District Bridge is a pedestrian bicycle bridge over the BNSF corridor. Its intent is to create not only a fundamental north-south connection from the University District campus on the north side of the railroad tracks to the Sprague area and medical district on the south, but it will also create an iconic sense of place as well. Additionally, the bridge would be a key component to support future mixed use development in the Sprague area.
