Pershing Circle closure
The Pershing Circle roundabout, located at the end of Liggett Ave., Kauffman Ave., and Lewis Dr.; JBLM Lewis Main (near Dupont Gate) will be closed Aug. 11-Dec.15 for roadway, lighting and storm drain improvements. This project will improve public safety by bringing the roadway into compliance with current WSDOT and federal ADA requirements.
Enhanced Traffic Patrols: Perimeter Rd.
JBLM DES will conduct additional traffic patrols on Perimeter Rd., beginning July 21 through the end of Joint Base Connector phase II construction (estimate is late August). This area has been the site of several accidents due to failure to obey posted speed limits in the construction zone, particularly before and after morning PT hours. Drivers are advised to *check your speed* and obey the 20 MPH posted limit (the road makes an "S" curve approaching the McChord CVIP gate).
AED (Defibrillator) Inventory
AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) can save your life - but they *must* be serviced every 6 months. All JBLM service members and employees are asked to check for AEDs in their work area, and look for the large JBLM Fire "Public Access to Defibrillation" decal (should be visible on the AED or its container without handling the device). If you don't see a decal, email the building #, street address, and AED location inside the building to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure your device is on the Fire Dept.'s inspection schedule.
Mounts Rd. gate changes
The Mounts Rd. Gate on JBLM Lewis Main has re-opened, but the Center Dr. overpass for outbound traffic into Dupont is closed June 30-July 30 for road widening and other improvements. Outbound traffic into Dupont should use continue to use alternate routes during the closure. JBLM Gate Hours & Locations.
