The Spokane region’s 2017 road construction map was unveiled on Wednesday to help motorists navigate around this year’s work zones.
The interactive map can be viewed online through different platforms, including mobile, said Staci Lehman, senior transportation manager.
For a number of years, local agencies and the state transportation department have cooperated in creating the map.
The map can be found off the main website for the Spokane Regional Transportation Council, which coordinated the map.
The website is at srtc.org/.
The map will receive updates weekly as new information becomes known or projects are completed.
