The Dirt: Transit station on SFCC campus to consolidate area’s bus stops
Spokane Transit Authority is beginning construction on a transit station on the campus of Spokane Falls Community College, according to city permit data.
The $3 million project will relocate three existing bus stops on Fort George Wright Drive to one on-campus station. The work will rebuild Elliot Drive and install traffic signals at the intersection of Fort George Wright and Elliot.
The station will continue service for STA routes 20 and 33. The project is paid for with a $2.1 million regional mobility grant from the Washington State Department of Transportation and $830,000 from a local sales and use tax approved by voters in 2016 to fund STA’s Moving Forward plan.
