I-5 JBLM Vicinity Congestion Relief Project, South Study Area: Supplemental Environmental Assessment and Online Public Meeting – Utilities

The project was evaluated to identify potential long-term and construction-related impacts on existing utilities in the area. Existing utilities include public or private providers of electricity, water, sewer, natural gas, telephone, data, fiber optic and other communications that could be affected by construction activities.

During construction, some potential utility disruptions, typically lasting only a few minutes, may occur during transitions between old and new connections. Barring emergencies, these interruptions would be planned and communicated in advance. Solid waste providers would need to modify service routes during construction. No long-term impacts related to utilities are expected.
