May 28, 2019

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A ceremony is planned to mark the beginning of expansion for a road to serve a new Amazon Distribution Center near Spokane.

Tuesday’s groundbreaking ceremony will draw regional dignitaries to a site that is expected to attract new businesses in addition to the Amazon center and its 1,500 jobs.

KREM-TV reports that Geiger Boulevard near the Spokane airport received a $16 million federal grant, along with $28 million in other funding, to expand the road and lay water and sewer lines.

County leaders say the improvements would support more than 3,000 new jobs and 1,300 new residents.
