Construction of a multi-lane roundabout on US 2 just west of Airway Heights begins early Thursday, August 10. When all the construction lane restrictions are in place, US 2 will have two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane for the duration of the work. Lane restrictions will be in place 24/7.
Drivers on US 2 between the Fairchild Air Force Base Main Gate and the Airway Heights city center should be alert for slow traffic and congestion, with possible delays as construction gets into full swing. Drivers with time-sensitive plans should consider adding extra time to drive through this area, especially during commute hours and shift changes at Fairchild Air Force Base.
The project is fully-funded by the Spokane Tribe.
