Getting There: The 2010s were a great decade for Spokane’s cyclists

In the past 10 years, the city has more than tripled its miles of bikeways and connected parts of town previously impassable on two wheels. With a new batch of elected officials entering office in 2020, it remains to be seen if that momentum will carry over into the 2020s.

New solution proposed for bus complaints on East Sprague

Nearly five months after the Spokane Transit Authority rebuffed Spokane Mayor David Condon’s request to move bus stops on East Sprague Avenue, the City Council will consider using technology to prevent cars from backing up behind buses in intersections.

Don’t give up on East Sprague homeless shelter

Spokane City Council members shouldn’t give up on a potential homeless shelter in East Central, especially without a solid alternative that can be quickly implemented. Another winter without more public shelter space should not be an option. Not so long ago, it seemed like the proposed shelter in a former Grocery Outlet store on East Sprague Avenue was heading toward reality. There were some kinks to work out and planning to do, but the end was in sight.

Getting There: Bikeways are coming to East Sprague

Guest opinion: City’s decision on bus pullouts benefits Sprague, drivers, neighborhood

On Thursday, the Spokane Transit Authority will vote on the City of Spokane’s decision to make East Sprague’s bus stops more commuter- and business-friendly.

Union Tavern opens on East Sprague in old palmistry building

Palms were read there. Hair was cut there. Radios were rented there. Now, the 111-year-old “palmistry” building on East Sprague Avenue is slinging microbrews and fish and chips. This week, the Union Tavern opened at 1914 E. Sprague Ave. by longtime Spokane restaurant and bar owner, Dale Kleist.

Survey: East Sprague respondents support pedestrian bridge construction, fewer travel lanes

Property owners and business people on East Sprague Avenue agree: They want fewer lanes on the road. A recent city of Spokane survey found that owners on Sprague between Bernard and Scott streets want change when the road is remade next year. If city engineers heed the survey’s results, the stretch will look similar to the design of Sprague’s complete renovation about a mile east that opened in the fall.
