Speed Limit Reduction Considered For Part of Inland Empire Way
A side effect of the Cheney-Spokane Road and SR-195 interchange that opened last year? less traffic on part of Inland Empire Way. Another unintended impact? Spokane's City Council is talking about lowering the speed limit on that section,
from 23rd Avenue south.
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
