SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — The City of Spokane Valley has reduced the speed limits on three roads throughout the city.

The decision was made due to construction projects in two areas, and crossing safety in another location.

The speed limit of 35 mph on Progress Road, north of Wellesley Avenue, has been reduced to 25 mph due to the closure of Bigelow Road.

Barker Road, north of Euclid Avenue, has been reduced from 40 mph to 35 mph due to building out of the corridor in the industrial area. The decision was also made to be consistent with the speed limit on the rest of the corridor.

Lastly, Indiana Avenue, from the I-90 ramp to Desmet Court, now has a reduced speed limit from 35 mph to 30 mph. The change was made to be consistent with the speed limit from east Desmet Court to Flora Road. It was also made to establish crosswalk safety in the area.
