New Website Helps You Get Around Construction

If you're one of the many folks who commute to Spokane for work, you've probably already noticed construction projects popping up in Spokane County, and it's only March. So imagine how many there are going to be by the time May rolls around. There are more projects than ever this year, due to cheap contractor and material prices.

Several have the potential to delay your commute, especially the project to widen I90 in the Valley and those who work downtown will have to contend with cosntruction on Second Avenue.

A new website is aimed at helping you avoid construction, and congestion in general. Go to to check it out. Then tell the folks you know who also drive to Spokane. The more people we can get using alternative routes or alternative modes of transportation, the less road construction will slow us down.
