SPOKANE, Wash. - Make sure you plan ahead for your morning commute tomorrow.
The Hamilton on-ramp to westbound I-90 will be closed starting April 1 (and no, this is not an April Fool’s joke).
The closure will allow crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation to complete bridge deck repair.
According to Spokane County Public Works, drivers will have several detour options to access westbound I-90 during the closure, though some depend on vehicle height:
- Vehicles under 14 feet tall can take the Second Avenue ramp down to Browne Street access I-90
- Vehicles under 15 feet can briefly head east, exit at Altamont Street (exit 283 A) and then travel under the freeway and take the westbound ramp back onto the interstate
- Vehicles over 15 feet must head east to the Third Avenue/Freya Street interchange (Exit 283 B). Those vehicles then will cross Second Avenue and take the westbound ramp onto I-90
The ramp is scheduled to reopen to traffic early this summer.
Before traveling, drivers can find highway conditions and construction updates on the WSDOT Travel Alerts page, mobile app and Twitter at @WSDOT_East.
