Parametrix previously provided transportation planning, transit, multi-modal engineering, and urban design for the Spokane Regional Transportation Council’s Division Street Corridor Study, known as DivisionConnects. The locally preferred alternative developed from that study was approved in April 2021. The current phase involves identifying potential growth, considering future land use transitions, and identifying and prioritizing active transportation improvements.
