Re: “167 extension to Port of Tacoma back on table” (TNT, 1-22).
Although finishing state routes 167 and 509 are badly needed, somebody left out the cross-base highway in the equation.
Here is a road that’s been talked about for around 40 years; anybody who drives and commutes in the Joint Base Lewis-McChord area will tell you it is badly needed.
If the state is going to spend a bunch of dough, get enough to finish that road also, because it to is a missing link. These roads are not getting any cheaper, and every year the state drags its feet, the more it’s going to cost to finish all of them.
Build them now, build them right, and get it over with.
