Mile 22 – Spokane Convention Center Expansion
Project Update: From the Division Street Bridge west to the King Cole Bridge at the Spokane Convention Center, the Centennial Trail has reopened! Like the newly discovered Spokane River Gorge views from the Trail at Kendall Yards, the “new” Convention Center views show case Riverfront Park, the north bank of the river and Gonzaga University like never before.
Extensive work to restore and landscape the Spokane River shoreline and bring a new first-phase surface to the Trail is beautiful. Even in their dormant state, the addition of over 75 trees and hundreds of native plants make this area flourish. Some Miracle Mile Medallions here have been carefully removed and stored. They will be re-installed in numerical order when the project is completed by December, 2014.
The second phase of Trail construction begins next September. We will keep you informed of closure dates and details.
We extend our thanks to Land Expressions, Garco Construction and the Spokane Public Facilities District for their work to improve our Spokane River, Centennial Trail and community!
