Thermoplastic markers improve Centennial Trail wayfinding
Centennial Trail users now have an easier time navigating their way from Mission Park to the south side of TJ Meenach Bridge! Friends of the Centennial Trail have donated funds to City of Spokane Parks and Recreation for the purchase and installation of 22 thermoplastic markers and arrows. Fused to the asphalt, these markers have been placed where there is confusion about where to find the Centennial Trail.
The project cost $9,200 and was funded from Spokane Bike Swap & Expo proceeds held in the Trail Builder's Fund of Friends of the Centennial Trail.
Our thanks to National Barricade and Mathis Striping for their work and expertise on this special project!
