JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. —
JOINT BASE LEWIS McCHORD, Wash. -- Relief is coming for commuters stuck on Interstate 5 near Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
By next February a new elevated roadway on the base will keep at least 500 service members from needing to use the interstate to get from one section of the base to another.
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.
