The first Connecting Washington funded construction contract implementing congestion relief improvements on I-5 in the JBLM area is expected to start within the next week. This project will widen I-5 in the DuPont area, primarily between Mounts Road and Center Drive. Some work extends just north of Center Drive and south of Mounts Road. The result will be an extended auxiliary lane on northbound I-5.
The attached file (4 pages) provides descriptive graphics about the upcoming construction project. Also, the following link is to the web site for the project:
This project has independent utility and a separate NEPA document from the larger corridor improvements addressed in the Environmental Assessment for the I-5, JBLM Vicinity Congestion Relief. That said, we have confidence that the improvements this project will construct are compatible with ultimate improvements in this part of the corridor.
The contract has 157 working days, starting from 2/9/17 and the prime contractor is Scarsella Bros.
