Spokane Valley Traffic Camera Project Starts Next Week

Work to install traffic management cameras and link signals along Sprague Ave. and Sullivan Rd. to the Spokane Regional Traffic Management Center is tentatively scheduled for April 9. Just to be clear, these cameras are NOT red light cameras, they are the live traffic cameras you can watch at www.srtmc.org.


Drivers can expect westbound curb lane closures on Sprague Ave. between Evergreen Rd. and Sullivan Rd. and northbound curb lane closures on Sullivan Rd. between Sprague Ave. and I-90 during work hours of 6am-5pm on weekdays. Signs will be posted to direct traffic through the work area.

Pedestrian access may be restricted at times and rerouted to the opposite side of the street. The $202,000 project cost is 86.5% funded by a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant and 13.5% funded by the City of Spokane Valley.
