Deadline To Submit I90 Comments Extended

If you haven't gotten around to submitting your ideas on how to improve Interstate 90through Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake, you're in luck. The Washington State Department of Transportation just extended the deadline to do so.

WSDOT is looking for your thoughts on freeway designs that could help commuters and freight haulers get where they're going more conveniently. Some of the suggested possible changes include added lanes and more efficient on- and off-ramp locations between Barker and Harvard roads.

For more information, here's a link to the WSDOT web page on this project. You now have until Wednesday, June 1 to submit your comments, thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. Get on it because I'm going to bug you about it.
