Before the snow flies...
In my commutes and adventures around the Inland Northwest in the last couple of weeks i've noticed many of the bigger projects are rushing to finsh before the snow and/or the end of the year,I-90's rebuild in the Valley which when done will mean the road will have a new concrete surface and 6 lanes as opposed to the prior 4,That project should be done this month and last time I drove it signage was going up and some minor concrete work as well just a bit more of the all new sound wall from Flora Rd. to Barker Rd yet to go.This will increase traffic flow and get rid of that annoying slow down thru this area come 5 and 6 every weekday.In the road world big news also out of Sandpoint as the Sand Creek Byway which will take US 95 around Sandpoint insted of directly thru downtown is way ahead of schedule and if weather cooperates it may be finshed by the end of the year,which is a whole 10 months early! Other smaller projects rushing are in the apartment front,it looks like only finshing touches at Coeur d' Alene's Riverstone West Apartments on John Loop and with a little more to go the 55 and over apartments off of Idahline near Seltice in Post Falls.And that's just what I can think off of the top of my head,Fall is always an exciting time for constuction so i'll keep watching.
