Crews begin paving on I-90 between Ritzville and Tokio in Adams County on April 11 to smooth the roadway for drivers and increase its lifespan.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will rejuvenate the aging pavement in the right lane, in both directions, and eliminate the ruts and potholes created by seasonal weather and high volumes of passenger cars and freight traffic.
“We’re stretching our precious paving dollars by only resurfacing the outside lanes in this portion of I-90,” said Keith Metcalf, Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Regional Administrator. “We last resurfaced this section of freeway in 2002 and the inside lane is still holding up fairly well.”
WSDOT’s contractor, Poe Asphalt of Post Falls, ID, is handling the construction work on this $2.5 million project.
Drivers can expect single-lane traffic through the construction area and should be alert for slowing traffic. The project should take about 10 weeks to complete.
