Spokane Valley Launches New Traffic Line

Spokane Valley Launches New Traffic Line

Before you head out the door in the morning all it takes is one quick call to know if there will be traffic during your commute. This month the City of Spokane Valley launched a new Traffic Info Line. The line will be updated weekly to include delays, contstruction zones, closures and detours.

"Drivers want to know what construction delays and detours to expect," said Mayor Tom Towey. He continued, "The Traffic Info Line gives them another way to get that information so they can plan ahead and find alternative routes or avoid the construction area."
