The City of Yelm has announced an Open House for the Stevens Street Northwest Roadway Project
on Thursday, January 25 from 5-7pm at the Public Works Facility,
901 Rhoton Rd.
This is an informal discussion & project update.
The chief question that should be asked is how will the city handle the left turn traffic in the afternoons from Yelm Ave. West Eastbound that will turn left onto Edwards St. to access the Stevens St. connector?
Also, with the new Tahoma Terra roadway at Killion Road plus this connector both dumping traffic onto Yelm Ave. West, how does the City expect Yelm Ave. West to handle the additional traffic from these roads with only a center turn lane added — meaning there is still only one lane in and one lane out of town via Yelm Ave. West — with Thursday & Friday afternoon inbound traffic gridlocked NOW for over a mile each week?
No, this Open House was not listed on the new City of Yelm Public Notices page on the city’s website. Click Agendas, then Public Notices.
