Neighbors living in the area of I-5 exit 111 have an opportunity to assist the Washington Department of Transportation in the redesign of the exit 111 intersection. There was a survey notification sent out in late 2015, but it seems that frequent users of this intersection I spoke with were unaware of the survey. It is not too late!
Please review WSDOT’s information at the internet link wsdot.wa.gov/projects/i5/sr510interchange and provide your suggestions on the comments form under Project Info (in Project Home in the column on the left side of the page). The intersection under review, I-5/Marvin Road (SR 510), is a heavily used access point that will soon experience even more traffic flow with development to occur in the Cabela’s area. There is interest in constructing a new intersection with I-5 at the Carpenter Road overpass. This new access point would greatly relieve current traffic congestion at exit 111 and provide a new intersection for all of the new construction (i.e. new traffic) to occur in the undeveloped area surrounding Britton Parkway NE.
Also, for neighbors living north of exit 111 (towards Tolmie State Park) the City of Lacey has proposed construction of a road for heavy, commercial trucks to the warehouses in the industrial parks that will free up traffic on Marvin Road through the roundabouts. Let’s support the Lacey City officials with this excellent proposal as they will soon be building a new school or two in the vicinity of the 41st/Marvin Road intersection. Good luck!
