Highway Paving Scheduled for Friday-Saturday, July 15-16; Expect Significant Delays

Contractors for the Yelm Highway Project plan to pave Yelm Highway from Boulevard Road to Henderson Boulevard on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16 from 6:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The work is weather-dependent. Some driveways will be temporarily closed while the asphalt cures enough to be able to support the weight of a vehicle. Motorists are advised to expect significant delays and to take alternate routes when possible. A map of alternate routes is available at the county's Yelm Highway blog, yelmhighwayinfo.blogspot.com

Call the Public Works office at 786-4580 for more information.
