Two problems with that: one, if you want to sit outside on a lovely summer evening and listen to the frogs croak forget about it; all you can hear are the thousands of cars rushing by the city. Two, if an accident should occur on I 5, and that only happens once or twice an hour, all traffic is diverted to the roads of Olympia, meaning a five minute trip to get milk will require packing provisions for a trip on the scale of the Oregon Trail journey.
