Sunday Early A.M. Slowdowns On I90

Be observant if you drive I90 through the Spokane Valley on Sunday morning. The Washington State Patrol will be assisting Avista utilities with rolling traffic slowdowns to pull a new aerial power line across the freeway and remove an aerial guy wire.

The first slowdown, near Pines Road, will occur at about sunrise. The second, near Madelia Street, will take place an hour or two later. The rolling slowdowns and ramp restrictions will be in place for 5 to 10 minutes each.
