Work starts on the intersection of US 2 and Elk-Chattaroy Road, north of Spokane on Monday. This project removes the existing right turn lane and highway shoulder on northbound US 2 at Elk-Chattaroy Road to allow for widening of the roadway to the east.
Once removed, the right-turn lane and shoulder will be rebuilt with a new offset right-turn lane that will provide better sight distance and generally improve the safety of the intersection.
Northbound US 2 traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone, except during the 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. weekday commute period, when both lanes northbound will be open.
The project is expected to be complete by mid-May.
