Route Development Plans serve as a tool for discussion, utilized to facilitate integration of the needs of the Department of Transportation with the needs of cities, counties, traveling public, and other stakeholders in the development of transportation solutions. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) develoed this Route Development Plan (RDP) for SR 291 from Francis/Freya (MP B-2.48) to the Scotts Valley Road intersection (MP 22.31).
This project's goal was to create a community consensus on the most challenging problems and the best solutions on SR 291 now and over the next 20 years.
Past RDP's have resulted in short-term safety projects and funding of design for long-term solutions like additional lanes and interchanges.
Partnerships & Cooperation
At WSDOT we seek to address the concerns of the tribal nations using the process outlined in Section 106 of The National Historic Preservation Act and the WSDOT Tribal Consultation Policy adopted in 2003 by the Transportation Commission as part of the WSDOT Centennial Accord Plan.
The Spokane Tribe has been consulted in this process and has been invited as a member of the Advisory Group.
This planning effort is being paid for by general WSDOT Planning funds. Funding for future improvements identified through this process will be sought at that time from the most appropriate sources.
