Monroe Road Safety Project
Monroe Road is a major rural collector, 11.72 miles long, two lane bituminous surfaced road with a pavement width of 20 feet to 22 feet with 0 to 3 foot wide gravel shoulders. The posted speed limit is 45 MPH.
The Spokane County Engineer’s Office has received funding for safety improvements from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and the High Risk Rural Road Program (HRRRP) in the amount of $327,000. The funding will provide safety improvements to help reduce the number and severity of run-off-the-road and intersection collisions on Monroe Road. Signage will be increased or enhanced through replacement of signs with higher reflectivity (especially at and through curves), edge line striping will be added and roadside safety will be enhanced by flattening slopes, removing hazards within clear zone or installation of traffic barriers (guardrail). For intersections along Monroe Road, signage will be added or enhanced such as larger stop signs, advanced intersection warning signs and arrow signs at tee intersections. An intersection warning beacon is being proposed at the intersection of Monroe/Hazard/Ridgeway.
