Work on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Spokane included construction of concrete sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists.

Location: Spokane

Owner/developer: City of Spokane

Project team: Spokane Rock Products, general contractor and ready-mix supplier; City of Spokane Engineering, engineer; Wm. Winkler Co., concrete contractor

This new road, an extension of Riverside Avenue in Spokane’s University District, involved construction of three concrete intersections, each designed with colored crosswalks. The project also entailed installation of 15,800 linear feet of curb and 4,600 square yards of sidewalk.

Concrete retaining walls abutting nearby railroad tracks were designed to look like surrounding work originally completed over 50 years ago.

More than 15 percent of the crushed surfacing top course in the project used recycled glass. Original brick pavers were also salvaged and used.

The concrete hardscape was accompanied by extensive landscaping to provide pedestrian and bicycle access through the developing neighborhood.
