US 2 - Deer Road to Day Mt Spokane Rd


January/February 2017

  • Weekly Construction Update
  • Work suspended for winter.
  • Awarded to Inland Asphalt of Spokane with a construction bid of $4,228,000.

US 2 will be resurfaced with hot mix asphalt from Deer Road to Colbert Road. In addition, turn lane enhancements will be constructed between SR 206 and Day/Mt. Spokane Road.

In 2014-2015, Corridor Review Study was performed with extensive community input to explore traffic movement opportunities in this area.  The study identified affordable near-term safety improvements on US 2 from Deer Road to Day Mt. Spokane Road that are part of this 2017 construction project.


Why is WSDOT paving and enhancing this highway?
The new layer of hot mix asphalt will protect the underlying roadway structure.  The turning lane improvements will reduce conflicts for vehicles entering and exiting the highway from local roadways and commercial developments.

The End Result
A smoother highway and reduced collisions.

Project Benefits
The new pavement will protect the public investment in the highway infrastructure.  Turning movement changes will reduce collisions.

What is the project timeline?
This project design will be completed and the job will be advertised for contractor bids, and built during the 2017 season.
