SR 510 Yelm Loop Phase 2 Improvement Project: Supplemental Environmental Assessment and Online Public Meeting – Land use and utilities

Land use

The Project is consistent with local, regional, and state plans for land use and transportation. The City of Yelm has planned for the Yelm Loop project since the early 1990s as a strategy for addressing chronic congestion in the downtown area. The Project is located partially in the Yelm city limits and partially in the Yelm Urban Growth Area. It will not change the timing or density of development in the area. Existing land use patterns in the study area are shown in the figure below.

Utilities

Some potential utility disruptions could occur during transitions between old and new utility connections. Disruptions are anticipated to last only a few minutes.
