In 2013, Spokane County funded a design study for a county-wide wayfinding system. The Regional Wayfinding and Signage System for Spokane County is a comprehensive project that will be designed to serve the needs of motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The Downtown Spokane Partnership and Spokane County contracted with Merje Designs to analyze our current signage system and develop a new comprehensive plan. The plan was delivered in 2016, updated in 2019, and is now ready for implementation.

The downtown boundaries for the plan are considered to be Broadway to the North, 2nd Avenue to South, Division to the east and Maple to the west. Total estimated downtown scope for implementation is $875,000.

This Wayfinding and Gateway Signage Project is a collaborative effort between Spokane County, the City of Spokane, City of Spokane Valley, City of Liberty Lake, West Plains, Downtown Spokane Partnership, Visit Spokane, Washington Department of Transportation, and the Spokane Regional Transportation Council to develop a consistent, informative, user friendly signage system across the region.
