Spokane Valley students are going to more safe this year as they walk to and from school. The City is making improvements to Broadway as part of the Broadway Avenue Safety Project.
The improvements include "Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon" (RRFB) set to be installed at the Centennial Middle School crosswalk at Broadway and Ella. The beacon uses flashing lights to alert drivers pedestrians are using the crosswalk. The City will also install a traffic island near Ness Elementary School at Broadway and Farr.
