On Tuesday, August 30, 2011, the realigned Capital Hill Road was opened to traffic.

This new section of road was constructed by Manke Family Resources and connects the Capitol Hill area of Shelton to Johns Prairie Road at what used to be Production Road just east of MCRA Park. The new paved road also provides access to undeveloped Port of Shelton property and, since the County is vacating the old Capitol Hill Road, Manke will have more flexibility and better access to do business on their property.
