Dale Stedman, advocate of north-south freeway and local AAA leader, dies at 91

Dale Stedman, a longtime leader of the local AAA and outspoken advocate of the north-south freeway, died on Nov. 12 at his home on Spokane’s South Hill. He was 91. From his post leading what was originally called the Inland Automobile Association of America for nearly three decades, Stedman influenced the route and construction of Interstate 90, which continues to define Spokane. The north-south freeway, officially called the North Spokane Corridor, was first conceived in 1946 and dogged Stedman for decades as he pushed for its construction, which finally began in 2001, thanks in part to his lobbying.
