Northbound US 195 Reduced To One Lane Starting Next Week


Beginning Monday, April 1, northbound US 195 will be reduced to one lane in the vicinity of Cheney-Spokane Road for work to construct a full interchange. Northbound drivers should be alert for possible congestion and slowing traffic. This is a long-term configuration. In general, the southbound off ramp to Cheney-Spokane Road is now closed so drivers will need to be alert for southbound highway traffic slowing to make right turns into Cheney-Spokane Road.

The US 195/Inland Empire Way intersection is now closed. Inland Empire Way traffic is directed to the Thorpe Road intersection. This is a permanent closure to accommodate the new northbound Cheney-Spokane Road on ramp.

Area residents need to be aware of night work on this project starting on April 8, 2013 that may be in place for several weeks. Residents can call 324-6250 for noise-related information.
