D.O.C. study starts for Palouse to Cascades Trail

Bill Grimes from SCJ Alliance Consulting Services in Spokane spoke to county commissioners Monday about a new study of the Palouse to Cascades Trail – formerly known as the John Wayne Iron Horse Trail. Following last spring’s approval by the state legislature to fund $1.8 million of trail resurfacing work from Malden to Rosalia, and $1.7 million to repair and re-open the Tekoa trestle, Grimes’ firm was hired by the Washington State Department of Commerce five weeks ago to evaluate what may come next.
