SPOKANE, Wash. -- The City of Spokane is evaluating bridges inside Riverfront Park. The evaluation is part of a strategic plan to evaluate the bridges’ long term future.
The city begins the project in the summer to assess the maintenance and replacement needs of 12 bridges in the park along with three others in the city - Iron Bridge, the Don Kardong Bridge and the Centennial Trail Bridge.
The project is estimated to cost around $350,000. The money will come from the city's general fund.
If city crews determine a bridge needs work, the city will then lay out the short term and long term maintenance needs so it can allocate the money to fix the bridge.
The city is in the process of bidding out the job. The project is expected to take about three months to complete.
