YELM – Community members and local businesses are invited to attend an open house to learn about plans to finish a two-lane highway loop that will provide State Route 510 drivers an alternative to Yelm Avenue.

The Washington State Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the City of Yelm and Thurston County, will complete the final 3 miles of this new roadway between Cullens Road Southeast and 170th Street Southeast, where it will reconnect with SR 507.

The SR 510 Yelm Loop would help reduce congestion through the business core, help reduce the potential for collisions, and provide a new route for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021.

Open house information

4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27

Yelm Community Center, 301 2nd Street, Yelm

There is no formal presentation. Attendees can meet with WSDOT staff to learn more about the design and timeline of the project and provide feedback.

This work is part of the SR 510 - Yelm Loop - New Alignment Phase 2 project, funded by the Connecting Washington transportation package.
