Road-opening ceremonies, featuring a military review of America's latest Field Artillery rocketry, will be conducted on Wednesday, October 13 for the new 13.5 mile, $15 million Tacoma-Midway Freeway. Site of the ceremonies is the Auburn Interchange shown in the attached photograph. The Field Artillery units, part of the 4th Infantry Division Artillery from Fort Lewis, will assemble in the northbound lanes (marked "D" in the picture) beginning at 10:00 a.m. Visitors and spectators wishing to view the ceremonies will be permitted to park on the roadway in the areas designated "B" (southbound from Seattle) and "C" (northbound from Tacoma). Route of the military parade is shown as a series of arrows, starting at the assembly area and passing through the cloverleaf interchange from the northbound lanes onto the southbound lanes and past the reviewing stand.
