More Road Closures Along I-5 Near JBLM

The ramp and weigh station will close each night at 10 p.m. Monday, July 28, through Thursday, July 31. They will reopen each following morning at 4 a.m. The closures are necessary while crews finish work on the one-lane access road from Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) to Center Drive. Drivers headed to northbound I-5 should use the Steilacoom-DuPont Road on-ramp to northbound I-5 or find another alternate route. Once the ramp work is completed, drivers using the Center Drive on-ramp to northbound I-5 will be able to take a free left turn, while a new stop sign will provide traffic control for JBLM drivers.

The current one-lane road from JBLM to Center Drive was originally built as an emergency access road not intended for routine use. As part of WSDOT’s ongoing efforts to improve I-5 traffic flow through the JBLM area, the ramp modifications will allow continual use by JBLM personnel exiting the base.

Revisions to the Center Drive interchange are one of several improvements that WSDOT and its regional partners are working on to help reduce traffic congestion along I-5.
