Gravelly Lake Drive will reopen and Nyanza will close on Friday.
LAKEWOOD, Wash. – Work on Lakewood’s JBLM North Access project is progressing: Gravelly Lake Drive will reopen on Friday. The section between Nyanza Road and Veterans Drive has been closed since spring.
Once Gravelly Lake Drive reopens, Nyanza Road will close. Crews will connect Nyanza Road to the roundabout. Once the connection is complete, Nyanza Road will reopen and Gravelly Lake Drive will close again.
Crews will then install a roundabout at the intersection of Veterans Drive and Gravelly Lake Drive by February. Despite supply chain challenges, this project has remained on schedule so far.
The City of Lakewood Road Work Map reflects the upcoming reopening of Gravelly Lake Drive and closure of Nyanza Road. Residents may subscribe for email updates on the project on the JBLM North Access Project webpage.
Referring to the map below, the section of Gravelly Lake between the yellow dots is currently closed. The yellow dots represent pending roundabouts.
The closed stretch of Gravelly Lake Drive will reopen on Friday, and the orange stretch of Nyanza will close. Crews will connect Nyanza to Roundabout 1.
Once complete, Nyanza will reopen and Gravelly Lake will close. Crews will install Roundabout 2 at the intersection of Veterans and Gravelly Lake by February.
