WSDOT hosts open house to share information, gather feedback

SPOKANE – Drivers and others who are interested in proposed safety improvements to US 195 near Spokane are invited to attend an open house on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Over the past few months, the Washington State Department of Transportation evaluated intersection-related crashes at five intersections on US 195 in the Latah Valley neighborhood. 

As part of the study, WSDOT engineers worked with the community and the City of Spokane to develop low-cost alternatives to improve safety at these intersections. The goal is to identify intersection improvement opportunities that will reduce the number and severity of collisions on this section of US 195.

During the open house, WSDOT representatives will be on hand to explain the potential improvements, answer questions and take suggestions from area residents, business leaders and drivers. Displays showing the possible improvements will also be available. 
Participants’ ideas will be used to shape the final plan for the highway.  

No formal presentation is planned. Attendees are welcome to come and go at their leisure during the three-hour event. 

Open house details

When: 4 – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7
Where: St. John’s Lutheran Church, 5810 S. Meadowlane Road, Spokane, WA
