Interstate 90
Highway system

Interstate 90 Business may refer to several business routes of the Interstate Highway System that connects Interstate 90 with the central business district of various cities bypassed by I-90. Each business route can be either a business loop or a business spur, depending on whether both ends connect to I-90. The business route in each community is considered a unique route. In many cases, these routes are a former section of a U.S. Route.

Washington[edit]

Cle Elum loop[edit]

LocationCle Elum, Washington

Interstate 90 Business was a former business loop through Cle Elum that connected with I-90 from an eastbound only flyover interchange on Old US 10 at eastbound Exit 84 to a full-diamond interchange for Washington State Route 970 at Exit 85. It was the westernmost business route along I-90 until it was decommissioned in the 1990's.

Ellensburg loop[edit]

Interstate 90 Business
LocationEllensburg, Washington

LocationMedical Lake, Washington

Spokane loop[edit]

Interstate 90 Business
LocationSpokane, Washington

Interstate 90 Business was a business loop of Interstate 90 in Spokane, running through the city from west to east. The route began near Spokane International Airport at exit 276, a parclo interchange on Grove Road where it briefly ran northwest, then turned northeastbound along South Geiger Boulevard. Beyond the airport property, BL-90 ran beneath US 2 with no access, and then turned onto an eastbound only wye interchange with West Sunset Boulevard, which merged as a one-way pair with 3rd Avenue eastbound and 2nd Avenue westbound. At Scott Street, the route left 3rd and 2nd Avenue moved northeast to Sprague Way, then merged onto the bidirectional Sprague Avenue beneath State Route 290 at Pines Road. The business route continued east onto Sprague Avenue until it reached Spokane Valley, terminating at exit 285, which coincidentally is the western terminus of BL-90 in Spokane Valley.

Spokane Valley loop[edit]

Interstate 90 Business
LocationSpokane Valley, Washington
Length8.21 mi[2] (13.21 km)
ExistedMay 2013–present

Interstate 90 Business is a business loop of Interstate 90 in Spokane Valley, running through the city from west to east. From its western terminus at exit 285, the route travels eastbound along Appleway Boulevard and westbound Sprague Avenue. The two streets merge onto the bidirectional Sprague Avenue at University Road and intersect State Route 27 at Pines Road. The business route continues northeast onto Appleway Avenue and turns north onto Barker Road in Greenacres, terminating at exit 293.[2][3]

The business route designation was proposed by businesses and the city government in 2012, along with $60,000 (equivalent to $98,000 in 2018[4]) to fund the installation of signs along Sprague Avenue.[5] The designation was approved by AASHTO in May 2013, and its 18 signs were installed by the city by the end of the year.[6] Sprague Avenue had previously been part of U.S. Route 10, the transcontinental predecessor to I-90, and reached its present width of 62 feet (19 m) in 1949. The city rebuilt Sprague Avenue in 2017, adding wider sidewalks, new crosswalks, and plants.[7]

The highways followed Sherman Avenue east through downtown town Coeur D'Alene. Then, the highway turned south and followed Lake Coeur D'Alene Drive and Yellowstone Trail along the shore of Lake Coeur D'Alene to the Coeur D'Alene National Forest. The highway moved to the present I-90 route after the freeway and Veterans Memorial Centennial Bridge was completed in the early 1990s.

Wallace loop[edit]

Interstate 90 Business
LocationWallace, Idaho
Length1.243 mi[8] (2.000 km)
Existed1991–present

Interstate 90 Business (also signed as The Harry F. Magnuson Way) is a business loop of Interstate 90 in Wallace. The route links I-90, which goes north of the city, and downtown Wallace. As its Business Loop designation implies, I-90 Business terminates at I-90 at each end. This section of Interstate 90 Business contains what was the last traffic light on a coast-to-coast Interstate highway. It begins at I-90 exit 61 in Wallace. It goes southeast on former U.S. Route 10 and the initial route of I-90. I-90 was rerouted to the freeway in 1991. I-90 Business follows the main road through Wallace. Locally, the route is known as Front Street, 5th Street, and Bank Street. I-90 Business intersects State Highway 4 at an at-grade intersection. This intersection is also the I-90 interchange with Highway 4. I-90 Business terminates at this interchange signed as exit 62.

I-90 Business is a segment of former U.S. Route 10 (US 10) and the original I-90 alignment through Idaho. US 10 was designated in 1927. US 10 became co-signed with I-90 in the 1960s. Eventually, I-90 replaced US 10 in Idaho. When the I-90 freeway opened in 1991, the US 10 alignment became I-90 Business. The intersection of Bank Street (US 10, I-90) and Seventh Street was the last traffic light located on a coast-to-coast Interstate highway. It was one of the last, if not the last, removed from a primary Interstate highway. It is the only traffic signal in Wallace and was put into flash mode when the new I-90 viaduct opened.47°28′17.8″N 115°55′20.7″W / 47.471611°N 115.922417°W / 47.471611; -115.922417 [9]

I-90 Business passes through the Wallace Historic District. In 1979, several blocks of downtown Wallace were listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district.[10] City leaders organized the effort to recognize the historic district to prevent the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Idaho Department of Transportation (IDOT) from condemning and demolishing the city's core to build an at-grade freeway. The FHWA and IDOT designed and built an elevated viaduct to finish the interstate freeway.

Interstate 90 Business
LocationFairmont, Minnesota

Interstate 90 Business is a business loop of Interstate 90 in Fairmont. It runs from a diamond interchange at exit 99 on I-90 at CSAH 39 to a folded diamond interchange with Minnesota Trunk Highway 15 at exit 102.

Business Loop 90 begins on Interstate 90 at exit 99, the interchange with CSAH 39 (North Bixby Road) and runs south, where it passes through farmland as it encounters the eastern terminus of CSAH 130, and is renamed 190th Avenue. The surroundings become slightly more industrial, as it passes the Martin County Fair just before crossing a former Milwaukee Road railroad line, and then makes a left turn at CSAH 26. While making this transition, the street name for CSAH 26 changes from 120th Street to Lake Avenue. BL-90 runs directly east until it curves to the southeast, where it briefly runs parallel to the ex-Milwaukee Road Line and both the routes and track cross bridges between George Lake and Sisseton Lake. Immediately after passing by the Martin County Courthouse, Lake Avenue ends across from the intersection of First Street and North and South Main Streets. BL-40/CSAH 26 runs south along South Main Street for one block before turning east again onto East Blue Earth Avenue where they remain overlapped until BL-40 makes a left turn onto Minnesota Trunk Highway 15, and runs north. BL-40/MN 15 cross the old Milwaukee Road line for the last time and then another one that branches off from this line further west in the city. Between the two crossings frontage roads start to parallel the road until the intersection with Margaret Street (CSAH 132). North of the bridge over Center Creek, Business Loop 90 ends at exit 102 on I-90, while Trunk Highway 15 continues north through New Ulm, Hutchinson, and the St. Cloud Area.

Interstate 90 Business
LocationAustin, Minnesota

Interstate 90 Business is a business loop of Interstate 90 in Austin. It runs from a diamond interchange at exit 175 on I-90 at CSAH 46 (Oakland Avenue West), and runs directly east with Minnesota Trunk Highway 105. Most of this segment of the road is flanked by local service roads, except at the bridge over Turtle Creek. After the intersection with 14th Street Northwest (former US 218), the road becomes a one-way pair, and MN 105 turns south onto 12th Street Southwest. Meanwhile, eastbound BL 90 runs along First Avenue Southwest, while westbound BL 90 remains along Oakland Avenue West. At Main Street, First Avenue Southwest and Oakland Avenue West both become First Avenue Southeast and Oakland Avenue East, and the one way pair ends at Fourth Street Southeast, and eastbound BL 90 turns left (north) to rejoin its Oakland Avenue counterpart. BL 90 crosses a bridge over Cedar River where Oakland Avenue East becomes Oakland Place Southeast. After the intersection with 10th Street Northeast it runs beneath a 14-foot (4.3 m) railroad bridge, then curves to the northeast to cross another bridge over Dobbins Creek and run along the east side of East Side Lake. Interstate Business Loop 90 ends at exit 180A on I-90/US 218, the latter of which leaves it's concurrency with I-90 at exit 180B.
