Meeting to focus on the NSC, its connection to I-90 and an associated noise study

SPOKANE –The community is invited to a public meeting Thursday, Feb. 13, to hear about design elements being considered for the North Spokane Corridor connection to Interstate 90 near the Liberty Park interchange. The Washington State Department of Transportation project team will discuss proposed changes to the original design, which are intended to reduce congestion along I-90.

This public meeting focuses on the area from Sprague Avenue to I-90 and the Liberty Park interchange. Presentation topics and displays will include:

  • NSC connection to I-90
  • Noise study purpose, process, and outcomes
  • Access between the NSC, I-90, and the local road network
  • Placemaking update in and around the NSC and Children of the Sun Trail

The North Spokane Corridor is a 10.5 mile limited access corridor, linking I-90 on the south, to existing US 2 and US 395 on the north. The NSC improves overall mobility by allowing motorists and freight to move north and south through metropolitan Spokane. More than 5.5 miles of the route are open to traffic, and WSDOT anticipates that the corridor will be completed by 2030.

Running parallel to the NSC is the Children of the Sun Trail shared-use path, which will connect with the Ben Burr and Centennial Trails.
