Connector road could relieve some I-5 congestion

TACOMA — Starting next winter, drivers wanting to access the northern part of Joint Base Lewis-McChord will no longer have to use Interstate 5 or back routes. Instead, they’ll be able to drive a connector road that runs from McChord Field to the main gate, linking the two sides of the sprawling base.

The connector road, stretching less than a mile, will cross railroad tracks and Perimeter Road. It is the first phase of a larger project that base leaders hope will one day allow people to travel from the southernmost portion of the base near Mounts Road to its northernmost border near state Route 512.
