Bettman-Dickey Stormwater Project Public Meeting Feb. 13 

SPOKANE VALLEY, WA --- If you normally travel along Bettman Road and Dickey Street, you can learn more about plans to improve stormwater drainage along the east side of Bettman-Dickey between 11th and 14th Avenue at a community meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 13. The meeting will be held from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Park Place Assisted Living, 511 S. Park Road.

            City of Spokane Valley Public Works staff members will be on hand to share information on the project, which call for adding swales, installing underground pipe and structures, and possibly removing some privately-installed landscaping in the public right of way. The work is expected to begin during summer and may take between four and eight weeks to complete.

            In addition to providing an overview of the project, there will be an opportunity to review the expected traffic impacts involving some lane narrowing and driveway restrictions. City staff members are especially interested in hearing input from those who may be affected by the project.

            For more information, contact project manager Ryan Brodwater at rbrodwater@spokanevalley.org or 509-720-5013.


SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS:  Individuals planning to attend the meeting who require special assistance to accommodate physical, hearing, or other impairments may contact us at 509-720-5001 or caldworth@spokanevalley.org so arrangements may be made.
