Location: Joint- Base Lewis McChord, WA
Owner: US Dept. of Defense
In an effort to accommodate growth and improve livability at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) for military personnel and their families, Osborn Consulting, Inc. (OCI) team members worked with the project team to transform 1.5 miles of a typical four-lane roadway into a six-lane multi-way boulevard. This multi-way boulevard separates vehicle traffic from adjacent parking and local access lanes; offers wide, tree-lined sidewalks; provides separated bicycle facilities; and integrates Low Impact Development (LID) strategies. OCI is especially proud that this project manages and infiltrates 100% of stormwater runoff onsite through 50,000 sq. ft. of roadside rain gardens and 50,000 sq. ft. of permeable paving.
