Sprague Entranceway

Welcome to Central NeighborhoodThe Sprague Entranceway is the six-block segment of that avenue south of S. 19th where vehicles exit or enter Highway 16 -- leaving or entering our Central Neighborhood.  As part of the reconstruction of Highway 16, state and city officials are planning landscaping and other improvements to that entranceway.  Members of the CNC Board have been involved in that planning process.  At our monthly meeting on May 5, 2011, representatives of the state Dept. of Transportation and the City presented some initial concepts and invited input from the many neighborhood members who attended.  Click here for a PDF (3.3 MB) of the concept slides that were presented, the last pages being notes from our comments.  Contact our CNC Chair, Tricia DeOme, if you wish to become more involved in this planning process.
