Spokane Valley is adding a second lefthand turn lane at Thierman Road onto Sprague Avenue despite warnings from traffic engineers and others that it would increase the risk of sideswipe collisions. In a 4-3 split vote, the City Council on Tuesday decided to proceed with the $14,000 plan to convert the inside northbound lane to a turn-only lane and give motorists in the outside lane the option of either making a left turn onto Sprague as well or continuing through the intersection. It’s described as a way of helping ease potential traffic buildup at the intersection and is expected to be completed later this year.
