NSC Opening Ceremony

The boss man attended the opening of the latest stretch of the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) this afternoon and took these pictures, at my request. He said, despite the absolute deluge of rain, they were nice and dry under one of the new underpasses.

He said there was a big crowd, about 150 people, and the highlight was the kids on old fashioned pedal cars who rode them on the new stretch of roadway, and hope to be able to drive on the completed freeway when they turn 16.

So this is what you've been waiting for. Crews were opening up the rest of the freeway this afternoon and it should be ready now for general traffic so try it out on your way home, if you live that direction.
