What do you think about MKL Way?

The City of Spokane is considering naming a new stretch of street just east of downtown as Martin Luther King Way. It's the section of what might more cartographically be labelled an extension of Riverside Avenue east of Division, which would be built through the old railroad warehouse area that will become part of the university district.

It's also thinking of naming the pedestrian bridge in the university district as the Coretta Scott King Memorial Bridge.

If you think that's the best idea since sliced bread or the worst idea since disco, or something in between, the city is inviting you to send comments. They can be e-mailed to  .

Or you could just wait for the public hearings that will be scheduled later for the Plan Commission and the City Council.
