The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA is funding several paving projects on state highways in our Region.
There are paving projects on US 2 from its intersection with SR 211 through the City of Newport, US 395 from the Stevens County Line near Deer Park to Immel Road north of Chewelah, and on SR 206 from US 2 to Bruce Road.
All of these projects are just getting underway, and drivers need to be alert over the next couple of months and plan their travels with extra time for possible construction delays.
Although it’s not funded through the Stimulus program, our contractor is still busy on Interstate 90 in the Spokane area. They are still paving shoulders and on/off ramps along with placing new signs. Most of that work is underway at night. The job should wrap up by Labor Day.
