The Future of Transportation in the West Plains

Whether you live, work, or travel through the West Plains area, the Washington State Department of Transportation would like to receive your input on transportation to, from, and within the area. People accessing the West Plains area are invited to take any of the applicable three surveys by Monday, Sept. 30.

Survey feedback will help inform the development of the West Plains Subarea Transportation Management Plan. The plan focuses on land use and all modes of transportation in the West Plains, with an emphasis on the US 2 corridor west of I-90. The purpose of the plan includes:

  • Refine past studies
  • Evaluate current and future land use and transportation conditions
  • Propose and prioritize “practical solution” strategies that will provide for the evolving transportation needs of the growing area

The study area includes the City of Airway Heights, City of Spokane, Spokane County, Spokane Tribal lands, Kalispel Tribal lands, Fairchild Air Force Base and the Spokane International Airport. Additional information, including interactive data maps, can be found at The plan builds off of several previous plans conducted by agencies participating in this project, including the City’s 2014 West Plains Transportation Subarea Plan.
