With the recent closure of I-5 that forced traffic to detour around the JBLM incident via Yelm, thoroughly placing our town’s traffic in gridlock for hours, and Mayor Harding touting Bypass funding in his State of the City Address, this is a good time to provide a Yelm Bypass Phase 2 construction update:
– From WSDOT about the SR 510 Loop (Yelm Bypass):
Stage 2 construction was funded by the Connecting Washington revenue package approved by the 2015 Washington State Legislature.
State 2 construction is scheduled to begin during 2021.

An in-depth report of over ten years of history with Yelm’s SR 510 Loop was covered extensively here December 21, 2015.
