Increased commercial and residential development on US 2 just north of Spokane has caused traffic volumes to increase by nearly 9 percent in the last 10 years. As a result, the number of congestion-related collisions is on the rise.

On Tuesday, Dec. 16, the Washington State Department of Transportation will host a public open house to present a number of possible low-cost safety enhancements on US 2 between the SR 206 Intersection and Day-Mt. Spokane Road.

WSDOT representatives will be on hand to explain the potential improvements. Information and suggestions from area residents and drivers will be used to shape the final plan for the highway.

Open house details
6 – 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16

4717 E. Day-Mt. Spokane Rd., Colbert, WA
