South Study Area Supplemental Environmental Assessment available for viewing and comment

DUPONT – People can now learn more about and provide comments on a Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) for a project that widens Interstate 5 with high occupancy vehicle lanes and replaces the Steilacoom-DuPont Road/Exit 119 interchange in Pierce County.

The Washington State Department of Transportation has created an online open house for people to learn more about the Interstate 5 JBLM Vicinity Congestion Relief Project South Study Area SEA. Comments on the SEA will be accepted starting today, Monday, Nov. 16, through Wednesday, Dec. 16.

The SEA was prepared as a supplement to the Environmental Assessment (EA) published in 2017 for the project’s North Study Area, already under construction.  

Open house information

Monday, Nov. 16, to Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Due to the Governor’s Stay Home – Stay Healthy Order issued on March 23, the project information is available to view online.

The online open house will give the public information on:

  • What has changed since the 2017 North Study Area EA
  • Next steps and project schedule
