Starr Road accidents raise safety concerns

Signs near the Newman Lake community warn motorists on Trent Avenue to slow as they approach Starr Road, but residents say the 45 mph zone is largely ignored by commuters. Residents also cite too many accidents and near misses as drivers cross the busy highway or turn, where Starr comes in from the north at a skewed angle compared to its route south. To call attention to traffic concerns, members of Tri-Community Grange organized a public meeting at the Grange hall in Newman Lake.

New rules expected to reroute trucks out of residential areas

The city of Spokane Valley hosted a little celebration Friday, the very day a new state law took effect that requires all livestock trucks weighing more than 40,000 pounds to stop at the Port of Entry. The city pushed for the law after residents came before the council last year to complain that heavily loaded cattle trucks from Canada were bypassing the Port of Entry and going through residential areas. Mayor Tom Towey praised the residents, police officers and state legislators who all helped get the law passed. “This is a textbook example of what each of us can do to make a difference,” he said.

Cattle trucks must stay on I-90 or face fine

OLYMPIA – Large cattle trucks coming into Washington from Idaho will have to use Interstate 90 and stay off roads such as East Trent Avenue or face a $1,000 fine under a law signed Tuesday by Gov. Chris Gregoire. The law targets commercial cattle trucks, some of them from Canada, that use State Highway 290 – which becomes Trent – through Spokane Valley to bypass the port of entry weigh station just west of the Idaho border.
