Project Info

I-5 - Nisqually Road SW/JBLM Mounts Road Gate - Signal Completed June 2014

This project installed turn lanes and a new traffic signal on Old Nisqually Road at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Mounts Road Gate. These improvements allow this gate to be used for outbound traffic from JBLM.

How you benefit

Relieves congestion
By using this gate, Joint Base Lewis-McChord traffic destined for Yelm or portions of Lacey can avoid using Interstate 5 by using this gate to enter and exit JBLM.

Partnerships & cooperation
WSDOT worked with Pierce County on road improvements at the interchange of Nisqually Road SW and the JBLM Mounts Road Gate near Interstate 5. This is one of many projects WSDOT and its regional partners are working on to help reduce traffic congestion along Interstate 5 during peak commute hours.


Pre-Existing Funds (PEF): $728,000
