The ride could get a little smoother for those of you who commute to Spokane for work on a daily basis. The Washington State Department of Transportation announced yesterday that work will begin next spring on a third lane in each direction on I90 from Sullivan Road to Barker Road. Here are the details from the Spokesman-Review.
I drive this stretch pretty regularly for work around 5 p.m. Pretty much every day I do, there is a bottleneck just after Sullivan Road where the freeway is reduced from three lanes to two lanes. There are often fender benders there as well. While I support this project because of the safety aspect, there are many people who believe an extra lane encourages more people to drive cars instead of finding alternative ways to commute. What are your thoughts on this particular project?
