Single lane closures planned for Snoqualmie Pass next week

Single lane closures planned for Snoqualmie Pass next week

If you’re heading to Western Washington anytime next week via I-90, transportation crews will be working on the roadway between Easton and Cle Elum.

There will be some single lane closures to be aware of and delays between Monday, April 9th and Friday, April 13th. Crews will finish replacing parts of the roadway in both directions due to deteriorating concrete.

The project is scheduled to be finished next fall.

A good tool while you’re on the road, check WSDOT’s @SnoqualmiePass Twitter account that updates with transportation issues for that region. There’s also the @WSDOT account that covers all of the state.

Deck the car with reindeers and duct tape. Nicholas Spragg, Spokane Valley resident, has made his 2002 Camaro into a mobile Christmas decoration. He emailed us to say he started decorating his car for Halloween and then Thanksgiving. Why not Christmas?

Spragg write, "The car is covered with duct tape and currently has over 26 decorations made completely out of duct tape."

Curious minds want to know how Spragg will decorate his car for National Fruitcake Day.

Construction scheduled in January for Sullivan Road Bridge

The Sullivan/Indiana intersection just re-opened after a few months of construction to improve the section leading up to the sixty-year-old Sullivan Bridge, but now the bridge will be going under the knife for improvements. Don't worry - it's only temporary.

In early January, the City of Spokane Valley authorized $358,000 for construction that will allow for increased bridge weight in late February. City council is concerned that decreased weight limits will impact local businesses.

Traffic will be shifted onto the northbound bridge and reduced to one lane in each direction.

Replacing the bridge completely is anticipated for the future. $19.7 million is needed, but they only have half from federal and state sources.

In Brief: Snowstorms Expected

In Brief: Snowstorms Expected

We've already seen our first snow in the Inland Northwest and KXLY4's Chief Meteorologist Kris Crocker said several more winter storms are on the way.

Light to moderate snow is expected Wednesday in the valleys, Crocker said. The chance of snow lingers through Friday with moderate to heavy snowfall in the valleys.

She also said the temperatures aren't going to climb high enough to do much melting anytime soon.

City Installs Two New School Zone Beacons

City Installs Two New School Zone Beacons

When drivers pass by Chester and Orchard Center Elementary, they’ll be guided to slow down with the help of new flashing school zone signs. They alert drivers when the 20 mph speed zone around the schools are in effect.

The beacons flash for 30-45 minutes during student arrival and departure times.

The signs were installed using grant money from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission to increase pedestrian safety and driver awareness in school zones.

A Public Works study conducted at Progress and University Elementary showed the flashing beacons have reduced the fastest speed of traffic by 31.9%
