Barker Rd Interchange Construction

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — Starting Monday, the Barker Road Interchange at I-90 will be closed through August 24.

The closure will begin at 4 a.m. on Monday and last 15 days. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) says there will be detours available during the closure.

Closures will also include the on- and off-ramps of I-90 near Barker Road, as well as the intersection. WSDOT says that crews will be building the first of two roundabouts at the interchange over the 15-day closure, then prepare to build the second one.

Drivers on westbound I-90 who use the Barker Road exit will be detoured to the Liberty Lake/Harvard Road interchange or the Sullivan Road interchange. The Sullivan Road interchange will also be used for anyone needing to get onto I-90.

The closure for the second roundabout is scheduled to begin August 24 and will continue through September 4.
