Be aware: Vail Rd. becomes major bypass arterial on GPS screens

You may have noticed that when I-5 traffic is by-passing the freeway blockages via Yelm, side streets have also recently become filled, including additional traffic bypassing Yelm via 148th and Vail Road between Rainier and McKenna.

That has caused massive back-ups at the intersection of northbound Vail Rd. to northbound WA Hwy.507 near Stewart’s Meat Market.

Bald Hills and Lake Lawrence drivers be aware that GPS screens on cell phones are now directing traffic via our side streets, since traffic monitoring sensors have been mounted atop traffic lights at key intersections in Yelm and the McKenna Y.
