“Olympia: Residents unhappy with drivers speed, landscaping”
From Chelsea Krotzer in The Olympian:
“City of Olympia and county officials celebrate the end of Yelm Highway construction this week, a project that has left several who live and work along the stretch of reconstructed road less than satisfied.”
“The project directly affected 68 homes and 12 businesses that front the road, and hundreds of people who live and work in the area and had to find alternative driving routes.”
“A dedication ceremony for the project is scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday across from Brassfield Drive Southeast.”
