(March 7, 2017) – Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement praising the agreement reached to keep North Spokane Corridor project moving forward.
“Completing the North South Freeway is so important to our region and has long been a priority of mine. I’ll continue doing all I can to ensure this project is on track. After meeting with the WSDOT Secretary Millar and talking to top officials at BNSF, I am pleased to see a framework reached for the environmental cleanup for the ‘Black Tank’ contamination site. I’m committed to bringing together the necessary groups to work through any complications along the way. This agreement will result in a better end product, with the route our community prefers and the environmental cleanup we need. This is an important step forward for Spokane and Northeastern Washington.”
