US 195 Cheney-Spokane Road Interchange to Open This Week

You're invited to celebrate the opening of the new
US 195 and Cheney-Spokane Road interchange this week. 

Crews spent the last 16 months building the new interchange for the 19,000 drivers who use this state highway, and the nearly 7,000 vehicles that access Cheney-Spokane Road daily.

The $9.5 million project eliminates turning and cross traffic, reducing the risks of collisions at this busy location. The new interchange also eases commute hour backups at the southeast Spokane connection. 

The ceremony to open the interchange is at 10 a.m. this Friday, May 23. To attend, turn off US 195 at Qualchan Road, about a mile to the south, then turn right on Cheney-Spokane Road. A flagger will direct vehicles to parking.
