The Washington State Department of Transportation invites you to an informational open house to learn details of a project to pave and repair State Route 291 this season. That job includes Francis Avenue west of Division to the Stevens County Line. From Division to about Lowell Road, near the Sundance Golf Course the existing roadway will be resurfaced. From there to the county line, (excluding the section rebuilt a few years ago near Nine Mile Falls) the surface will be crack sealed and minor repairs made. To reduce the effects on traffic, paving work will be scheduled for evening and overnight hours. Other work includes updating the curb ramps to current ADA standards.
The open house is Tuesday, May 21, from 5-7 p.m. in the Salk Middle School Cafeteria, 6411 N. Alberta. Engineering staff will have displays and be on hand to answer questions about the work.
