This project is a design-build with the contractor as Graham Contracting. In the end, the Children of the Sun Trail will connect to the Centennial Trail which runs from Spokane to Coeur d'Alene, and the mile-long Ben Burr Trail in Spokane once complete.

What to expect

The work at the Children of the Sun Trail will mainly occur away from any traffic impacts to the public.

While most work is off the roadway, the construction of several pedestrian bridges will cause restrictions at various east/west roadways including Euclid and Wellesley Avenue. Pedestrian bridge crossings at these roadways will likely have impacts on the roadway once the footings begin construction and girders are set over the roadway.
