Leading the Way
The Centennial Trail is an important active transportation option for those commuting to Barry Greene work, getting vehicles off roadways.  Spokane County's Barry Greene, P.E., Transportation / Development Services Engineer, has over two decades of service planning transportation infrastructure, and we welcome him to our Board of Directors.  He is among a growing list of Spokane County Transportation Engineers who have kindly served our organization over the years.  Thank you and welcome, Barry!
