SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Motorists frustrated by congestion at Pines Road and I-90 will be happy to know that construction to relieve the traffic backups has officially begun.

"It's taken a while to get everything set up and scheduled," said Project Engineer Ken Knutson.  "But when it's done, traffic will move much more smoothly and safely through that area."

Currently, traffic along Pines at the interchange area is often backed up all the way past Mission Avenue.

The Pines-Mansfield Project calls for reconfiguring the way westbound I-90 traffic enters and exits the freeway at Pines. Existing freeway ramps at the north end of the overpass will be closed and traffic will be redirected at Montgomery Avenue and Indiana Avenue.

To eliminate traffic conflicts at the on-ramp, eastbound traffic along Montgomery will be rerouted onto Mansfield through a new roundabout at Montgomery/Wilbur. Montgomery Avenue west of Pines Road will be open only to westbound traffic.

Preparation work along Mansfield Avenue has already begun and local traffic is being detoured. 
Starting Monday, August 11, Pines Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. On Fridays, lanes will re-open at 3:00 p.m.

Drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid traffic congestion and delays.

Some suggestions include:

  • North and southbound traffic: Argonne Road and Sullivan road will act as alternative through routes for those normally using Pines
  • East and westbound traffic: I-90, Sprague Avenue, and Trent Avenue will be the best alternatives to Montgomery or Indiana
  • Spokane Valley Mall: Evergreen Road and Sullivan Road
