US Route 12 in Walla Walla County, Washington

The Ghostbuster:
There are no signs of construction along the US 12 corridor on Google Maps. I guess we'll just have to wait until the Satellite image is updated to see the new four-lane highway.

Sentinel satellite imagery is of low resolution compared to Google Earth, but can be as recent as 1 day old. Here's a link to the latest satellite image of that area.

It does show two interchanges and overpasses elsewhere.

OSM shows the alignment.

pderocco:
It looks like the west end of this new expressway is the third alignment for US-12, with Byrnes Rd being the original one along the railroad tracks.

Bruce:
The new expressway (not a freeway, and only an extension of the bypass) between Touchet and Walla Walla will open later today.

From the USGS topos, it doesn't seem that Byrnes Road was ever part of US 12. Maybe part of the predecessor IEH, but definitely not US 12.
