6th Avenue Feedback Requested At City Of Airway Heights Open House, July 13th

Project Goal & Description:

Previous studies, such as West Plains Connection, have identified the need to address the performance of the existing transportation system in the West Plains area.  By improving the local roadway network of 6th/10th/12th, local trip connectivity will improve and demand on US 2 will reduce. 

The goal of this project is to carry forward the West Plains Connection Phase 2, improving the overall transportation system, and multimodal usability and safety of 6th Avenue between Craig Road and Russell Street.  The project includes extending 6th Avenue to Craig Road, sidewalks to eliminate gaps on the north side, a shared-use path on the south side, median treatments to create a boulevard, and transit stops to Russell Street.
