Drivers traveling between Spokane and Pullman will need to plan extra time for their trip or possibly explore alternate routes during two upcoming projects. Repairs on five bridges and work to add four new passing lanes highlight the 2018 construction season kicking off Monday, March 26. Beginning March 26, contractor crews will start setting up temporary traffic signal systems on US 195 at three locations; two near Rosalia and one just north of Steptoe. These signals will direct alternating single-lane traffic through the bridge repair areas. The signals will operate 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Motorists should plan for a total of up to 20 minutes in delays between Steptoe and the Spokane County line, depending on traffic, when the bridge projects are underway. Drivers with time-sensitive travel may wish to use an alternate route.
