The public is invited to learn more about the design and project status for several key US 395 intersections in the Deer Park area between Colville and Spokane.
Because US 395 is an important route to Stevens County residents and businesses for travel to and from northeast Washington, the Washington State Department of Transportation will showcase designs for the Short/Main and Monroe/Crawford intersections during an open house in Colville on Thursday, Oct. 20. WSDOT representatives will be on hand to explain the improvements and answer questions from area residents, business leaders and drivers. Displays showing the possible improvements will also be available.
The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 20 from 4-7 p.m. at the Spokane Community College – Colville Center – 985 S. Elm St.
As part of this project, a partial closure of the Burroughs/Dalton intersection and paving Short Road on the west side of US 395 is planned. More information can be viewed in advance on the Deer Park Intersection Improvement study website and comments can be submitted prior to the open house via email to Larry Frostad, assistant traffic engineer.
Over the past few months, WSDOT evaluated intersection-related collisions at several locations on US 395 in the Deer Park area. As part of the study, the agency worked with the community to develop low-cost alternatives to improve traffic and safety at these intersections.
