WSDOT Suggests Safety Improvements to Highway 2

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has some ideas to make the stretch of U.S. Highway 2 from Mt. Spokane Park Drive north to Day-Mt. Spokane Road safer.

Development in that area has increased the amount of traffic and the number of accidents. Some suggested improvements include a roundabout, flashing lights, bike lanes, narrower lanes, speed reductions and more.

Here's more on this project and a timeline for it.
