KXLY News had a live report last night saying that not many people are using the North Spokane Corridor. I checked their website but couldn’t find the video of the story, just a print piece saying the freeway is open, the speed limit is 60 miles per hour, etc. etc.
What I’m wondering is, are people not used to it being open yet so they’re not utilizing it? It’s only day 4 of the stretch of freeway being open, so is that too soon to expect much capacity on it? Also, is it just too short of a stretch to bother with at this point? It’s only 3.5 miles, which at 60 mph means you’d only be on it for about 3 minutes before having to get back off.
I haven’t driven the NSC yet so let me know if you have and what your impression was.
