Spokane Community College parking lot expansion to add 400 spaces

Spokane Community College is spending $706,450 to expand an existing parking lot due east of the Walter S. Johnson Sports Center, according to city permit data.

The 76,000-square-foot expansion of a centrally located lot comes on the heels of the college building a $5 million project transit center on campus, which will act as the eastern terminus for Spokane Transit Authority’s Central City Line, a $92 million bus rapid transit line that is anticipated to begin operating in July 2022. The lot expansion could bring upward of 400 additional stalls.

The parking lot expansion and relocation of the transit center from its previous spot facing Greene Street are also related to construction of the North Spokane Corridor, the $1.5 billion freeway that will be elevated over the community college’s parking lot adjacent to Greene.
