Preparations Begin For Final Paving On SR 510
YELM – Drivers who use State Route 510 between Yelm and Lacey should be prepared for potential delays as preparatory work occurs on Thursday, May 1, for final paving on two SR 510 roundabouts at Reservation Road and Yelm Highway. From 9 p.m. Thursday, May 1, to 5 a.m. on Friday, May 2, flaggers will reduce SR 510 to one alternating lane of traffic between Yelm Highway and Reservation Road.
At that time, motorists will also notice a change in the intersection of SR 510 and Yelm Highway. Crews working on the project will shift traffic off a bypass road, which had been used over several months to divert traffic away from one roundabout, and back onto Yelm Highway. If the contractor is unable to finish the work Thursday night, the same traffic restrictions will occur Friday night. The work is in preparation for the project’s final paving later this spring. At that time, both roundabouts will open in their final two-lane configurations.
