I90 Lanes Opening Up

Starting tomorrow night, drivers will be able to use both lanes in each direction on I-90 through Post Falls. This stretch of freeway has been reduced to one lane in each direction due to bridge rehabilitation work. The eastbound on-ramp at the Appleway Interchange will also be re-opened. The speed limit in this area will be raised to 55 mph.

The project includes both east- and westbound bridges from the Washington State Line to Spokane Street in Post Falls. The bridge decks had a 1.5-inch layer of concrete removed off the surface, damaged areas repaired and the bridge decks overlaid with a new concrete surface. The bridge approaches will receive a new asphalt surface and bridge joints also will be repaired.

Nighttime paving work will begin Tuesday (June 1), from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Lanes will be reduced during paving operations.
