The folks at Protect Yelm.Org has had two updates on the Bypass in the last week:

“The project is said to be completed in winter of 2010 according to theThe project is said to be completed in winter of 2010 according to the www.wsdot.wa.gov site. I use the term completed loosely because the only funding any where near in place is Stage One that only runs to Cullins Road, not even to Canal Rd which could then route some of the traffic around town.
And the new zoning of the land the 1/2 a Bypass will run through? The City of Yelm doesnt have water to hook up peoples homes that they issued building permits to, much less to start developing all the new exiting commercial and residential zoning along the Bypass site.”
Ed. Note: HMMM! Food for thought!

“I emailed Dennis Engel at the Washington State Department of Transportation, who replied to me quickly with some great info on the construction schedule.
Weekly traffic updates for Thurston County are published at on the wsdot website.”

Funny, Beck didn’t tell the Olympian about the water issues here in Yelm…
From the Olympian this evening:
Yelm, the countys fourth-largest city, issued fewer single-family building permits than a year ago, but the city still is on pace for 75 housing starts this year, Community Development Director Grant Beck said. He said the first-quarter data was skewed a little because many builders waited until later in the year before picking up their permits. Although 10 were issued in the January through March period, 12 have been issued this month, Beck said.
