It isn't there yet, but when 395 is completed it will be amazing. Even as is, it is nice to be able to avoid the traffic on the North side of town. As someone who drives Hwy 395 daily, I appreciate what a great road it has become.

395 North of Spokane is mostly 2 lane a pretty dangerous but gorgeous. I hate driving it in the winter!! It is completely opposite of 395 between Ritzville and Tri-Cities which is great road but boring scenery.

I lived in Chewelah 17 years, Loon Lake for 3 so I know HWY 395 pretty well from Spokane to Colville. I drive 395 3-4 days a week. Some nice views, lots of Pines and Farms, a nice drive out of the city with small towns for a lunch or picnic. South of Spokane is mostly 4 lane now, so... More

From Canada to Mexico most of 395 is boring with a capital B. While a fast route south if you want to get to Tri Cities most of the Washington part is desert and farmland with not a thing to see. Through Oregon you get some trees, and there are a few little hills in the corner of Idaho, but... More

The farther you drive north into the mountains the prettier it gets. The new interchange is nice if you are heading east.

I take this road often to commute to Spokane for shopping or other. It can be a bit dicey in heavy winter, but this 2-lane road is maintained well and always offers a nice, scenic drive. Be sure to have plenty of gas, because gas options are very scarce on this road and cell phone coverage is spotty at best.
