Downtown Spokane is growing and our infrastructure needs to keep pace.
Several projects are happening this year to help build a better downtown, and a better Riverfront Park. See the progress on all the latest construction projects here on this website. You can also sign up for automatic traffic updates by text, email or social tools.
We are improving public infrastructure in the downtown core, as well as revitalizing Riverfront Park. These voter-approved projects are building a better downtown.
With a bit of planning, you’ll be able to get downtown for work or play without major disruptions. Even at the height of construction, you’ll have several ways to get downtown. In fact, nearly all routes into Downtown will be open and operating normally.Select project below to view details:
