This project will add four new northbound passing lane segments and three new southbound passing lane segments on US 195 between Colfax and Spangle in two phases.
(Note: The SR 26 truck climbing/passing lanes west of Colfax are funded for construction, in a separate project, during 2025.)
Why is WSDOT
adding these passing lanes?
US 195 is a two-lane rural highway with average daily traffic volumes of 4,000 to 7,000 vehicles per day. Although congestion is rare, slower vehicles can occasionally cause delays and prompt impatient drivers to attempt to pass in an unsafe manner.
The End Result
The project will add a total of six new passing lane segments to provide drivers with more passing opportunities.
What is the project timeline?
Construction on the first two segments will be under construction and completed in the 2017 season.
