An open house and access hearing on the proposed Cross-Base Highway will be held Wednesday, April 26 at Woodbrook Middle School. The open house will start at 4 pm followed by a 6 pm access hearing.
Woodbrook Middle School is at 14920 Spring Street SW in Lakewood, east of the I-5 intersection with Thorne Lane. Additional information is available from John Ho (888-461-8843), Washington Department of Transportation. There is also information available on a Washington DOT website.
The proposed highway will provide a 6-mile, multi-lane divided highway from I-5 at Thorne Lane at the west end and connecting to 176th St at Pacific Avenue (SR 7) in Spanaway.
The open house allows interested parties to learn more about the project and share ideas with WSDOT staff.
The access hearing is a legal procedure to allow abutting property owners and others the opportunity to provide testimony related to property access.
Comments will be recorded and included in the formal project record.
