The Washington State Department of Transportation is trying something new! Because not everyone who drives US 195 lives along it, the WSDOT is offering an online public forum to
discuss safety concerns along US 195 and State Route 26 near Pullman at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5. This means people won’t be required to drive long distances to attend a meeting in order to have their opinion heard.
interactive, town hall-style meeting will provide participants the opportunity
to stream the live video and submit questions and comments in real time, all
without having to leave home.
from WSDOT, Washington State University and the Washington State Patrol will be
on the panel. The organizer of an online petition that asked WSDOT to address
the public’s safety concerns will also participate. WSDOT will present
information on upcoming improvements to the highways and WSP will address
driver-safety issues.
fatalities on US 195 and SR 26 last Thanksgiving weekend led to increasing
concerns regarding collisions and driver safety on these highways, the main
routes to and from the WSU campus.

wishing to participate remotely will need to sign in with a Google user name

or comments can also be submitted in advance or during the meeting via email.
WSDOT partnered with WSU, which is providing the studio location and technical
expertise, to produce the forum.
