Inslee touts transport ideas in SpokaneOctober 16, 2013 @ 3:00 pm
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Gov. Jay Inslee is visiting Spokane, and says he wants to see a new transportation proposal that would include more money to finish the North Spokane Corridor.
Inslee says he would like to see a new transportation package from the Legislature before the Apple Cup in late November.
The Spokesman-Review says the North Spokane freeway is part of efforts to improve Highway 395 as a thoroughfare to Canada.
Inslee's comments Wednesday followed this week's announcement that he had dropped plans to ask the Legislature for $450 million to build a new bridge over the Columbia River between Vancouver and Portland, Ore.
Inslee says he will meet with legislative leaders later this month to talk about a new transportation package.
