As soon as this month, construction will begin on a roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 2 and Deer Heights Road. The intersection is at the border of Airway Heights and west Spokane.

The city of Spokane is funding the $1.5 million project, which will be managed by Deer Heights LLC.

A new North 40 Outfitters Center is also coming to the area, according to the city. Construction on the store is expected to begin later this year.

The city of Spokane’s Interim Communications Director Marlene Feist said in a release Thursday, “The roundabout will accommodate planned and future development expected in the area and was approved last year.”

City leaders are holding an open house where they will discuss the project on Tuesday, April 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 9015 W. U.S. 2. More information is posted below.
