Washington State Route 230

On Saturday, July 20, 2013, Washington State Route 230 did not exist, and so I couldn't drive it.

RCW 47.17.440
State route No. 230

A state highway to be known as state route number 230 is established as follows:

Beginning at a junction with state route number 90 in the vicinity of Ritzville, thence easterly by the most feasible route to a junction with state route number 23 in the vicinity of Ewan.

I think Highway 230 would provide a good alternative route from Puget Sound to WSU. By staying on I-90 longer, this route would probably be faster and safer than driving Highway 26 from the Columbia River all the way to Colfax.

Until we find the money for these twenty-five miles of asphalt, however, Highway 230 will remain just a line on the map, a good idea that never saw the light of day.
