US 395 - Hatton Coulee Rest Area
U.S. 395 varies as either a freeway or expressway for the entire 73.21-mile drive between I-182 at Pasco and I-90 at Ritzville. Pictured here is the roadway north of the 1995-built diamond interchange with SR 26 in Adams County. Photo taken August 3, 2011.

Four laning of U.S. 395 was completed between the Tri-Cities and Ritzville on November 21, 1995 when 15 miles of a new northbound roadway by Lind opened to traffic. An $83-million project started in 1991, expansion of U.S. 395 widened 50 miles of roadway from Mesa to Interstate 90. The stretch tied into a previously widened U.S. 395 between Pasco and Mesa. Final work involved rebuilding of the interchange at Interstate 90, which occurred by 1996.1
