– If you’re in the West Plains area on Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25, get ready for some possible traffic delays on Highway 2 near Fairchild Airforce Base.
100,000+ visitors are expected to enter and exit the base those days for Skyfest. You can expect severe congestion, slow traffic, and stopped traffic, especially just after 4 p.m. when the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds wrap up their daily performance.
Heavy traffic can also be expected on State Route 902 between I-90 and the City of Medical Lake.
– Beginning on Monday, July 26th, Hayford Road south of US 2 will be closed from the highway to McFarlane Rd. Detours are available via Garfield Road. No impacts to US 2 traffic are expected at this time. The closure is to allow sewer crews to do construction there.
