Last month, STA received an award for a Spokane Regional Transportation Council grant, totaling $951,500. That money, which consists of federal dollars, will go directly to the preliminary engineering and design of the transit center.

STA communications manager Molly Myers said the work on the preliminary sketches will begin in early fall or winter this year, and should take up to 12 months in total.
