US 2/Colbert Intersection Safety Improvements

What is the project?

In response to citizen’s concerns about recent collisions at the intersection of US 2 near Colbert Road, located 14 miles north of Spokane, WSDOT is meeting with the community to discuss options designed to improve safety.

These are difficult times with mountains of uncertainty. We care about the residents, business owners, and students in the vicinity of US 2 and Colbert Road, and hope that there will come a time in the not too distant future where we can come together again to discuss solutions.

At the third public meeting, WSDOT presented refined options after getting funding input from the legislature.  People in attendance voted to hold off and wait until early 2020 before making any project decisions so that WSDOT can approach legislators to see if funding to build j-turns is a possibility.
