Mike Gribner of WSDOT filled the Transportation Committee in on potential improvements that could be made along the I-90 corridor between Liberty Lake and Spokane Valley at the Barker and Harvard Rd. interchanges, as well as the creation of a new 2-lane Henry Rd. to connect Country Vista and Mission. These projects, according to Gribner, have the green-light from both cities and from WSDOT and the funding is available. The only problems come from the WSDOT not seeing the projects as being “high priority,” having to wait for approval from the State legislature, and a lack of access to engineers and construction crews to complete the jobs. Gribner anticipates the first project to be completed will likely be Henry Rd., with construction beginning around 2021.
