US 195 / I-90 TRANSPORTATION STUDY
This study has identified 26 transportation projects that, when implemented, will improve safety and mobility in the study area, and accommodate some of the needs of planned development. This strategy will serve as a source of potential projects that can be included in regional planning efforts, such as the SRTC Horizon 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and similar efforts by project stakeholders including the Washington State Department of Transportation, the City of Spokane, Spokane County, and Spokane Transit Authority.
