“City Receives $300,000 Grant to Construct Sidewalk Along Mill Road”

“The City of Yelm was awarded a $300,000 grant through the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) to construct a sidewalk along Mill Road, eliminating a gap in our sidewalk system and better connecting dozens of nearby homes to Mill Pond Elementary and Ridgeline Middle School.”

“The new-ADA compliant sidewalk will be 6-feet-wide and run approximately 1,130-feet in length between 104th Way Southeast to the intersection of 107th Loop Southeast. The project will also include a planter strip, vertical curb and gutter, lighting, and crossing enhancements to improve visibility and overall safety through the corridor.

“The City Council unanimously authorized Mayor Foster to sign a $90,000 design agreement last August and is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2020. The total projected cost of the new sidewalk is $710,000 with $410,000 coming from local funds.Read more
