The North Spokane Corridor (NSC) is a 10.5 mile freeway linking Interstate 90 to U.S. Route 395.  Currently, 5.5 miles are complete and operational. According to WSDOT, the entire project is expected to be finished by 2030.

Another huge piece of the project is nearing completion.

The Wellesley Avenue interchange will connect to the northern portion of the freeway motorists have already been driving. This finished part of the project adds 2.5 miles of drivable link to the freeway. A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for Thursday, November 16th at 2 pm.

When completed, what will be the end result?

At completion, this project will connect to US 395 at Wandermere and US 2 to the north and connect to I-90 near the Freya/Thor interchange to the south. This will create a 60-mile per hour, 10.5-mile-long north/south limited access facility. Interchanges will be located at Wellesley Avenue and Trent Avenue (SR 290) in addition to the ones already complete at Francis/Freya Street, Parksmith Drive, US 2, and US 395 at Wandermere.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
