The Jet Apartments 12905 47th Ave SW, Lakewood, WA98499 The Jet Apartments is a relatively small apartment community with approximately ten units. All units are on the ground…More level. The complex is made up of a handful of duplexes and four-plexes. The neighborhood is quiet and is on the East side of I-5, which is very convenient to McChord Air Force Base and Fort Lewis Army Base. Prospective renters should call for details or to arrange a tour.
This is the place you go when you get the dreaded “emission test required” notice on your license tag…More renewal form. The test station is not actually run by the state, but a private contractor who gets your $15 fee. The actual testing is quick and painless — usually the test itself takes less time than the wait in line. Some drivers of late-model cars will be asked to get out of their vehicle and wait in a booth while the technician plugs into the diagnostic jack, usually located under the dashboard on the driver's side. The technicians are no-nonsense, but they won't bark at you — some even smile if you pass.
The test station is tucked away at the end of an industrial cul-de-sac east of I-5 and it can be a little hard to find. There is one sign on 112th Street SW, but none after that. The Lakewood takes cash or credit cards, but only local checks. It is equipped to handle RVs and motor homes.
