Have you ever tried to get off I90 at Argonne Road from either direction around 5 p.m.? Then you
know about the long backups that sometimes stretch all the way back out onto the freeway. A traffic study being wrapped up by the public works division of Spokane Valley shows that about 42,000 vehicles travel over the two-lane bridge at Argonne every day. The Pines interchange has similar traffic issues.

The University Road Overpass Study is looking at what it would take to relieve congestion in these two areas and whether constructing an overpass at University Road, spanning I-90 and the railroad tracks, would make a difference. The early results? It’s going to take a lot of money to fix the problem.

The Spokesman-Review has the details.
