– Editor’s note:
While City of Yelm officials provided very ambitious dates for this project last year by announcing construction beginning in 2019 and being completed within 2 years, the Washington State Dept. of Transportation (WSDOT) official timeline is published below showing construction beginning in early 2022 and completed in late 2023. Therefore, if Mayor Foster keeps to his previously stated intent to not run again in 2021, the ribbon-cutting on this roadway will not occur while he is mayor.

Update from WSDOT:

“WSDOT is in the process of a federally required environmental assessment phase that will continue into mid 2020.”

Timeline:

  • Environmental reevaluation – Winter 2019 – Summer 2020
  • Project advertised for competitive bidding  – Summer 2021
  • Construction – Early 2022
  • Project completion – Late 2023

The End Result:
“In this project, crews will build the 3 remaining miles of SR 510 between Cullens Road and 170th Street Southeast. The new connection, like the previously built Phase 1, is proposed to be a two-lane highway with bicycle and pedestrian facilities.”
