The public is invited to learn more about Spokane County’s project, Bigelow Gulch/Forker Road Intersection (Project 4A) and Bigelow Gulch (Project 5).
Project 4A will construct a portion of the Bigelow Gulch project at the existing Forker intersection. A structure will be constructed for Bigelow Gulch traffic to pass over Forker traffic to eliminate left turning traffic on Bigelow Gulch Road. Connections to existing Bigelow Gulch Road west near Evergreen Road and north and south of Forker will be made to provide a drivable link. This project has been awarded and start of construction is weather-dependent.
Project 5 - This project is on the Bigelow Gulch Road/Forker Road corridor between the existing Bigelow Gulch/Forker Road intersection and a new Bigelow Gulch/Progress Road intersection. Construction will occur in two phases. The first phase will construct the south portion primarily east of existing Forker Road. The second phase will connect the first phase with the improvements from the Bigelow Gulch/Forker Road intersection project. A five-lane section, two lanes each direction with a center left turn lane will be constructed.
The Open House will be held at the East Valley Middle School that is located at 4920 N. Progress, Spokane Valley, WA on November 13, 2017, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. There will be displays showing preliminary design information and staff will be available to answer questions.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, but have questions or comments concerning the project or you would like to give us your input separately, please call Plans and Contract Engineer Tim Schwab at 477-7658 or email at [email protected].
