    Welcome to the Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley

    Our New bridge
    by Martha Schaefer
    Kudos to Max J. Kuney Construction and Spokane County for the new lower Little Spokane Drive Bridge at Mill Road. We'd like to give a shout out to the great work they did as our neighborhood watched the progress with approval.

    Workers carefully minimized the impact on adjacent areas of their project during construction the past two summers while also being attentive to the possibility of Native American artifacts that might be present around the site.

    Our members are enjoying the nice addition of trail work which accompanied the bridge's replacement.

    Since the impact on the river bank was minimal, the County donated the excess trees and shrubs not needed for mitigation to public lands within the river valley. There were more than 50 trees and shrubs added to our landscape.

    We also appreciate the willingness of Spokane County Department of Roads and Engineering to listen to the FLSRV Board's request to adopt a design one of our members saw in Issaquah; as a result those traveling through the Valley now enjoy views through the repeated "windows" design on the railings showcasing the river.
