The Route Development Plan (RDP) for US 2 from the Lincoln County Line to I 90 was initiated by WSDOT in January 2007. A Region Steering Committee andn RDP Advisory Group was assembled made up of people representing state, county and city planners, businesses, schools, tribes, emergency responders, citizens, developers, and law enforcement. The two groups completed the study in 2010.
The final study documents are available for viewing.
A significant part of the RDP process is the evaluation of safety issues within the study limits.
The RDP will incorporate the findings from previous Corridor Safety Projects. Detailed collision history will be reviewed through the entire project to find safety problem areas and help identify possible solutions.
Addressing current safety problems and looking forward to potential avoid future problems will be ongoing during the study.

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 and Kalispel Tribes will been consulted in this process and have been invited as members of the Advisory Group.
