Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has announced that the green light has been given to community-preferred option for the US 395 North Spokane Corridor connection to Interstate 90.

The decision to go with this alternative came after a review of survey results and public comments, along with consensus among WSDOT engineers. The community-preferred 'alternative 1' design has a smaller infrastructure footprint with greater potential for placing pedestrian bridges and future development of any surplus lands. 'Alternative 2' would have given shorter travel times, but would have involved a larger footprint with less potential for placing footbridges and for future development.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2026 and take roughly four years.
